We are a local not-for-profit that gives people with disabilities in Gippsland the best support to reach their goals.
Our origins go back to 1981, when we started as a local support group for people with acquired brain injury (ABI).
Since then, we have grown to become a leading disability service provider in Gippsland.
Today, we offer a range of services to people with ABI and other disabilities.
We are a registered National Disability Insurance Scheme provider.
We are based in Morwell
Our staff are located across Gippsland.
We are passionate about empowering people with disabilities.
Headway Gippsland is registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission.
Mission and vision
Headway Gippsland’s mission is to support and empower people with disabilities to live independent, meaningful, and enriched lives.
We promote independence, choice, and inclusion for all individuals with disabilities, and empower them to achieve their goals.
We believe in collaborating with our clients, their families, and the community to provide high-quality services.
We foster a co-design approach where individuals with disabilities are at the centre of their own care.
We strive to inspire a society that respects and celebrates human diversity.
We endeavour to share our knowledge, seek learning opportunities, and grow together
