Disability Support

As approved provider to the DSC, the WA NDIS and NDIA trials, Community First is able to help you to plan and manage your life as you wish. We will partner and support you in leading a more independent and fulfilling life.

You come first

We help to identify activities and outcomes that meet your needs. We don’t try to squeeze you into a box that someone else has designed.

Individuality is vital – we know and respect that. Every plan is different. We call this ‘Person First Planning’, because we know that you come first. It is at the core of everything we do. We know that if it is to be successful, it must be your plan, not ours. We don’t tell you what to do, when or how. We help you decide your own program to meet your goals.

You decide what kind of life you would like to have and how we can support you to reach your goals. Your mentor works with you to develop your personal plan and celebrate your successful achievements along the way.


We specialise in the development of group programs that allow for a wide range of personal expression and development in a non-confronting and supportive environment, such as our acclaimed Ability Arts program in Mandurah (soon to be expanded to the Cockburn/Kwinana region).

We provide a wide range of in-home support services as they are needed, including transportation and respite care.

We can also help you find meaningful employment.

Services are available in the South West metropolitan corridor of Western Australia between Fremantle, Bull Creek, Palmyra, Cockburn, Kwinana, Rockingham and Mandurah as well as through Southern WA in Bunbury, Busselton, Albany and their surrounding regions.
