A Voice for Change
Unisson Disability has always been at the forefront of change. In all our interactions and relationships we advocate the interests of people with disability. The reason we exist as an organisation is for them and we will be driven by their aspirations and desires.
We Make Things Happen
Relationships are not an end in themselves. With courage and through strong relationships and with our passionate employees we make things happen. We enable the achievements and successes of others.
A Life With Meaning
We have been a long-term champion of the introduction of the NDIS in Australia, a scheme which enables people with disability to self-direct and self-advocate as well as focus on building personal support networks that connect them with their communities.
People with disability have rights and make choices about their lives. A meaningful life is one with purpose – a narrative about who we are and what we do; purposeful activities that contribute to the lives of others and a shared sense of belonging - in communities, families, at home and at work.
As a result, Unisson Disability is driven by the aspirations of clients who are determined to do it for themselves.
Whatever it Takes
We know the possibilities that should be open to people with disability, so we lead our employees at Unisson Disability to enable this. We work in ways that convey the message about rights and possibilities in all the things we do. We encourage staff to understand the purpose in their work focusing on values, language and approach. We will deliver a customer service framework that embodies this approach and delivers support that is grounded in our values.
We don’t presume to know better about other people’s lives.
We act with humility.
We listen, facilitate, support and enable.
Our Connection with You
At Unisson Disability, we believe human connection is the key to delivering a high standard of customer service to the people we support. Our unique service model is based on some key principles that guide our employees and give them the tools to build experiences with clients that have a substantial impact.
It’s what sets us apart as a provider of disability support to you and your family.
We believe in learning about people’s unique stories, searching for common ground, always finding the ‘yes’, being authentic and creating memorable connections with each individual that we support. The support we provide is what we do, the connection we create is HOW we do it.
