Who is Aruma?

We're glad you asked! Aruma is a new name in Disability Services, and Child Youth and Family Services, but we're definitely not the new kids on the block. You might remember us as House with No Steps, The Tipping Foundation or Vista Community Support, 3 great organisations with over 100 years of combined experience, who came together in 2018.
