I’ve been with Goal Focus Support Services for pretty much all of my NDIS life and they have helped, supported me with so much from the personal front, helped with getting to all my appointments plus assisted with getting things in my life that has made things more livable. I also didn’t really get out of the house much, having Donna and her team with me on a daily basis for over 2 years has allowed me a more enriched life of being able to get out of the house daily, catch up with friends regularly which has enabled me to expand my circle of friends as well as new activities that I am now doing weekly. Amazing provider!!!

The place looks amazing and fun for any child with a disability. It's in a nice location. I could tell as soon as we walked into Goal Focus STA that my son felt comfortable & loves the place but his seperation anxiety probably stops him from doing most things that he would usually do at home but I can not thank all the staff, especially Donna for being so understanding of my son Taylens needs aswell as being such a huge help whilst I was in getting surgery done. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/10 😁

I love how this awesome place caters for children of all needs. The play area is vibrant and inviting. The rooms are equipped with hospital like hi and low beds. There is a teens games room in the garage with great games to entertain anyone. Accessible bathroom for wheelchairs and entire house is set up for the comfort of those who come for a stay. Would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for respite for their children. Friendly and experienced staff with a boss who is absolutely wonderful to work with. Donna has put a lot of hard work and thought into creating this house for children to feel at home when they come to stay and equipped with all things to support and regulate their emotional needs. Have not seen anything like this before. Highly recommend that you come and have a tour.
