Wesley Woodward origins
Wesley Mission has been working with people with disabilities for more than 40 years. Throughout this time we have piloted a number of new support programs and demonstrated an ability to stay up to date with demands and developments in the industry.
As services for people with disabilities have become more sophisticated, Wesley Mission has tailored services accordingly. We are able to draw on a number of networks and resources that we have built up over the years to offer people with a disability and their families a high standard of care.
The New South Wales Younger People in Residential Aged Care Programs (YPIRAC) was introduced in 2007 to provide a home for people who were at risk of entering an aged care facility because there were no facilities available that met their needs in an age appropriate way. The Department of Ageing, Disability and Homecare (ADHC) released a tender in 2008 for those services that had existing buildings or facilities that might be able to be adapted for this program and Wesley Mission was successful in getting this tender. The Wesley Mission YPIRAC program (Woodward) commenced in 2009.
