Minimbah Challenge

Minimbah was opened in 1983 when parents from the local special school, Karonga, realised that there were few appropriate placements for their children when they left school. Originally Minimbah was part of the Subnormal Children Welfare Association. It now caters for up to 50 service users on a weekly basis who have moderate to high support needs.

Minimbah is successfully run by a Management Committee of 12 Board members comprising of parents and interested individuals from the community and a dedicated team of staff. Minimbah provides a focused and personalised Community Participation service for people with disabilities assessed in the high, very high and exceptional ranges. Minimbah is a purpose built facility offering day programs.

Minimbahs experienced staff provide optimum learning and care for our service users. Minimbahs computer system, with touch screen access for clients, and our sensory garden are just two examples of the emphasis we place on continually developing our facility by providing innovative learning options for our service users.

At Minimbah we believe our person-centred planning approach provides a process to understand the distinct circumstances of our clients through the development of a pathway that works towards an optimal lifestyle. Our planning processes include both long and short term goals.

Minimbah develops Individual Plans to reflect a balance in a clients life, in order to maximise outcomes across all aspects of life, communication, health/medical, personal skills/leisure, community integration and inclusion, sexuality, social networks and friendships, work culture and religion.
