Key Assets Disability Services in Western Australia

In Western Australia, Key Assets provides disability services across the Perth metro, Peel and South West regions.

We take a person-centred, family-centred approach and work with children, young people, parents, and carers to understand individual needs and aspirations. We offer a number of services for children and young people living with disability. We work with all kinds of people.

We have extensive experience in working with children and families and welcome enquiries from parents and carers.

We specialise in supporting individuals who may have experienced childhood trauma – some live with their family, some with foster carers, and others live independently. Our particular strengths are in helping support children or young people who have been in care to reach their potential.

To be eligible for our services, the service user must be under the age of 18 years at the time of referral and have NDIS or other funding. The exception to the age requirement is when a young person in state care is turning 18 and leaving care. We then provide support so the young person transitions successfully from care and into independence.

Ability Care (host family)

Ability Carers provide a home for a young person with a disability. Ability Carers are fully screened and assessed, in the same way we assess foster carers. Ability Carers:

  • assist young people to navigate the pathways to independence and adulthood.
  • can be a family, a couple or a single person
  • provide full-time accommodation or short-breaks to young people with a disability in a homely environment.
  • There is a careful matching process between a young person and the Ability Carer. The young person’s family can sometimes be involved in supporting them.

Short Breaks

  • Short term accommodation
  • Camps
  • Respite placements

Support Co-ordination

Support Coordinators (level 2) and Specialist Support Coordinators (level 3) work with you to design and build your supports to meet your goals. They can assist you with negotiating across a range of services and help you to build networks where you are at the centre.

Support Coordinators will also assist to link you to the right services for your needs, help you understand your plan and how your funds can be spent. Support Coordinators work alongside you.
