Birch Care provides transport services for people with disabilities to promote independent life. Our participants benefit from improved mobility, smooth access to appointments, and pleasant transport to work and social gatherings. We encourage their independence in travel by empowering them to use public transit.
It’s not just about getting from point A to point B; it’s about empowering individuals with disabilities to access the world and live life to the fullest. Our commitment to accessible travel and transportation means breaking down barriers, ensuring that everyone can experience the joys of exploring new places, visiting loved ones, or simply enjoying a change of scenery.
We provide specialised services and vehicles designed to accommodate various mobility needs, making travel safe, comfortable, and convenient for our participants. Beyond the practicalities, disability travel and transportation foster independence, boost self-esteem, and enhance social inclusion. It’s about enabling individuals to connect with their communities and the wider world, proving that no one should be held back by their mobility challenges. At Birch Care, we see disability travel and transportation as a means to unlock boundless opportunities and enrich lives, one journey at a time.
At Birch Care, we lay stress on encouraging and inspiring the participants through personal growth-oriented programs. From taking them out for fishing trips and live sporting events to organising school holiday programs, we do everything to enhance their development. Our aim is to educate them along with ample recreation, which makes learning fun. Socialising further boosts their self-esteem and helps in building social skills which are essential for adult life. We strive to get the participants involved in tasks that make them feel happy and excited so that they willingly take part in the proceedings. It is never a dull day when we are around to provide our support.

NDIS stands for National Disability Insurance Scheme offered by the Australian Government. It offers funding to individuals with disabilities to provide for the expenses related to disability. It allows individuals with disabilities to get funded for reasonable needs that help in capacity building. It is independent of the Disability Support Pension and universal healthcare. The NDIS offers three types of support funding including Core Supports, Capital Supports and Capacity-Building. The core supports include disability transport, social support, etc. The capital supports are offered for high-cost assistive technology or refurbishment of house or vehicle. The capacity-building support is provided for assisting with the development of life skills.
We have vast experience in working with people with disabilities of all age groups. All our professionals are intensively trained in meeting the needs of people with a variety of disabilities. We have worked with both children and adults in the age group of 7 to 65 years with physical, mental, or speech impairment. We provide assistance with mobility, social and community participation, companionship, domestic tasks, overnight support, post-operative care, school holiday programs, and more. You can trust us because we make sure that the participant stays safe and comfortable throughout the activities and caregiving methods. Contact us today to discuss your needs in detail.
Our disability support workers are recruited after careful assessments and undergo the required training to deal with people with disabilities with patience and care. They work diligently throughout the day and provide support every step of the way to fulfil the desires of the participant. Our aim is to brighten up their lives with unparalleled assistance that makes them confident and keeps them motivated to do better. Our group activities help them to get involved with other people and build friendships and strong bonds that help in meeting social needs. We improve the learning curve with educational and skill-building activities that also aid in decision-making and problem-solving.
Children with disabilities need special care and attention as they are emotionally vulnerable and dealing with their uniqueness. However, every child is different, and our support workers approach them with a flexible and open mindset so that they can communicate freely. We aim to bring them out of their shell and enjoy life like other children through a variety of activities and tasks. From assisting in daily living tasks to building life skills, we work with them as friends and supporters. They can lean on us in times of need and get all the desired help without any inhibitions. We aim to develop their personalities in a holistic manner.
