About us

Our Story

We are Headway Gippsland, a not-for-profit organisation born and built in Gippsland. We pride ourselves on giving people living with disabilities the best support to reach their goals.

We came from humble beginnings, starting out in 1981 as a mutual support group for people with acquired brain injury (ABI). We are now proud to support all people with disabilities and their families. To think about how far we have come!

We provide some amazing services to people across Victoria, but are deeply committed to our local community. We believe that “little drops of water make the mighty ocean.”

We provide plan management, support coordination, individual supports and three wonderful social support groups that get together weekly. Our close-knit team is friendly, qualified and extremely dedicated to you.

When you join our community, you are part of something bigger. We share a common mission: to inspire a society that respects and celebrates human diversity. We want to support people living with disability to live independent, meaningful and enriched lives.

Thank you so much for being here, it means a lot to us!
