House Supervisor - Mornington Peninsula

Melba Support Services
  • DDSO3A

For 45 years Melba Support Services has been committed to providing people with disabilities truly individualised services focused on creating more choice and greater control for each person, over their life. With the introduction of the NDIS, our not-for-profit, community-based organisation, can now continue to provide our range of high-quality services to people who choose to use us. How great is that!

Our commitment to person-centred services, is evidenced by our accreditation with the Council on Quality and Leadership, USA. Melba became the first Australian organisation to be accredited under CQL’s Person-Centred Excellence “with Distinction” quality framework.

Melba provides a range of services, including:

  • Accommodation
  • Daytime Participation and Learning
  • Anytime Participation and Learning
  • Respite (Carer Respite, Funded Respite, Leisure Support Program)
  • Employment, Volunteering and Skill Building (Social Enterprises, Community Connections)
  • Relationship Skills
  • Communication and Planning

Helping someone achieve their personal outcomes, whether that be in daily living, at home, with their health and wellbeing, through lifelong learning, at work, participating socially and within the community, with relationships or through advocacy and choice and control, is what drives the team at Melba Support Services.

Following a recent merger with Karden Disability Support Foundation, Melba has recently secured a significant portion of transferring disability accommodation and respite services from the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services.
