Carinbundi is a local, not-for-profit disability organisation, which provides the widest range of supports available in the region to over 180 customers aged 0-65 years, with disability.

Some of the supports provided by Carinbundi include, but are not limited to:

  • learning and life skills - we have various programs to help develop independence, self-esteem and social interaction
  • respite - we provide many options for respite including overnight respite, one-to-one respite, peer support, and other group respite
  • community access - we provide community access both one-to-one and in groups
  • supported accommodation - we currently operate 12 supported accommodation facilities

Carinbundi will play a pivotal role in supporting people with a disability and their carers to take greater control of the types of support they receive and who provides that support.

Host Provider Model

Our Host Provider service - Your Life Your Choice, is completely individualised and developed around the needs, aspirations and goals of the person we support. Our focus is you - the customer.
The first step is to engage with you and/or your carer and work with the YLYC Manager to develop a plan and provide a quote for supports.
Once the plan has been developed and agreed to and the quote has been accepted, the plan is then implemented and monitored on a regular basis.
