About Us - Give a Care

About Us

Give a Care is a NDIS registered disability services provider operating in the South-Eastern and Eastern suburbs of Melbourne. Give a Care is unique because it was founded by Jeff Shaw who has been living with an acquired brain injury disability for over 10 years.

Driven by a passion for more respectful and quality care, Jeff’s vision is for Give a Care to provide a range of services that empower people with a disability to make choices to live fulfilling lives.

What makes Give a Care different to other disability service providers?

Firstly and most importantly, we truly Give a Care, and our clients’ needs come first. We spend a lot of time personally matching support workers with clients, so we get the right match based on our client’s requirements.

Secondly, Give a Care is founded by a person who has a disability, who has lived experience of what it’s like to access service providers and understands how difficult and frustrating it can be. Give a Care was created to enable people living with a disability to feel empowered and to live more fulfilling lives.

What We Do

At Give a Care we know that having choice over you care is what counts. That’s why we provide you with a selection of services that empower you to lead the life you choose.

We offer a range of services including support coordination, disability support workers, core supports, group activities, plan support and recovery coaches.

Advocacy

Jeff is passionate about self-advocacy for people living with a disability.

Jeff regularly represents the broad views of people with a disability and is a member of various advisory groups and committees representing people with a disability.

These include:

  • Speak Up Bayside Self-advocacy – Bayside Council
  • Brain Injury Matters – Self- advocacy organisation
  • Self-Advocacy Resource Unit (SARU)

Give a Care acknowledges and recognises the Traditional Owners of the land upon which we live and work, and we pay our respects to their Elders both past and present.

Give a Care is working towards Rainbow Tick accreditation. Rainbow Tick Accreditation provides assurance to LGBTI consumers and staff that an organisation will be responsive to their needs.

Give a Care is a TAC, WorkSafe and NDIS Accredited Service Provider
