Senses Australia

Senses Australia is a leading not for profit organisation which has been providing services to people with disabilities for 120 years.  Our organisation is committed to our vision and we are passionate about our purpose.

Senses Australia provides services to well over 650 children, adults and older adults with a range of disabilities. Our services are not only for the person with the disability.  Services are also provided to a person's family, other health professionals and service providers, and to teachers.

Currently, we have over 250 employees with over 90% of these people working directly with clients.

Senses Australia’s uniqueness

1. We focus on individual needs.
The focus of Senses Australia is on the individual and meeting their needs through an individual response which demonstrates that we listen. Sounds simple – also sounds as though every disability service provider would do this. However we receive feedback that this is not the case.

2. We provide a comprehensive service.
Senses Australia has a ‘wrap-around’ service where therapy can be provided to an adult receiving in-home personal support, or respite can be provided to the family of a child receiving therapy, or positive behaviour support can be provided to an adult being supported in shared accommodation. This is very unusual amongst disability support providers and is highly valued by clients

3. We are not diagnosis or disability specific.
Many, many people with disability have dual and in some times, multiple, diagnoses. For example, many children have autism along with their physical or intellectual disability. Many adults with intellectual disability have a physical or sensory disability. Some children with disability have no diagnosis especially those with rare genetic conditions. This creates difficulty for many families who try to find a service provider which does not only provide diagnosis or disability specific services. Senses Australia is one of a very few disability service providers which provides services to people with a broad range of disability as well as its unique services for people who are deafblind.

4. We have a reputation for quality service.
Senses Australia has a reputation for the provision of quality services. This reputation is expressed by the State Government, by other disability service providers and by current and past clients and their families.

5. We have a proven track record of disability service delivery.
Senses Australia is one of the oldest disability service providers in Western Australia having provided disability services to the West Australian community for 120 years. Senses Australia has proven over a century, that it is reliable and viable and has a proven ability to adapt.

6. Our clients tell us that they are well satisfied with their services
Senses Australia asked clients whether their services were improving their lives and helping them achieve what was important to them. The results demonstrated high levels of client satisfaction. 93% of clients agreed or strongly agreed that Senses Australia was improving their life. 94% of clients said that Senses Australia was helping them achieve what is important to them.
