Provider Spotlight: EDGE Community Services

We were fortunate to catch up with EDGE Community Services team at a recent Ready Set Connect event in Geelong –– a meet and greet for providers, participants and industry representatives. .

EDGE helps those who experience disability to reach their full potential. Here we’re highlighting how they help.

Who are EDGE Community Services?

EDGE Community Services is a registered NDIS disability provider. EDGE Community Services specialises in providing innovative centre-based day programs and short-term accommodation.

EDGE Community Services strives to provide social and skill-building opportunities through an individualised, and strength-based approach. Our programs are tailored to reflect participant interests and meet individual participant support needs within the context of a group setting.

EDGE Day Programs aim to increase capacity building, social skills and life skills in a safe, supportive and engaging environment. EDGE offers a range of program activities including cooking, team building, social outings, photography, music, drama and art.

How did EDGE come to be?

EDGE was formed to support individuals living with disabilities to reach their full potential in a safe and supportive setting.

Which regions does Edge service?

EDGE currently has two centre-based sites –– located in Geelong and Werribee.

The Geelong site is located at 4 Balliang Street, South Geelong 3220, and our Werribee Site is located at 107 Elm Park Drive, Hoppers Crossing 3029.

They also have two short-term accommodation (STA) sites. A newly opened beach stay in coastal Warrnambool and a farm stay in country St Arnaud. STA’s run weekly, 52 weeks of the year with three and four-day getaways available. We provide transport to and from our STA locations.

What’s the Edge Community Services difference?

Many of the staff at EDGE have previously worked in diverse fields; including the police force, first responder units, mental health, family violence, child protection units, disability support and social work.

The team goes above and beyond to meet the support needs of each individual participant. They aim to promote participant choice and control with a focus on facilitating participant-led programs.
