People living with disability in Geraldton now have more options with the opening of Activ’s first new accommodation home in 30 years.
The opening of the new house will provide two Activ customers with the opportunity to move out of home and live independently.
Activ CEO Danielle Newport said the support of Activ, combined with National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) funding, meant customers could aspire to greater independence through increased participation in their community, employment opportunities and independent living.
“We’re excited to extend our service offerings in Geraldton and offer more living options for locals who live with disability,” said Ms Newport.
“With a focus on independence, we are also running an information session called ‘Achieving Independence’ in Geraldton on Monday 23 September,” she said.
Topics covered at the information session will include NDIS and funding, accommodation options, independence and how Activ can help.

As part of its commitment to delivering services in regional Western Australia, Activ will also hold its board meeting in Geraldton on the same day.
Activ currently supports more than 70 individuals living with disability in Geraldton.
Among a range of other services Activ is perhaps best known for manufacturing and supplying craypots to Geraldton and the surrounding communities since the late 1980s.
