Disability services have improved immeasurably with the opening of the new, state of the art facility in Bowenhall Street, Shepparton.
Local Federal Member for Nicholls, Damian Drum, officiated at the opening and said he had already witnessed the positive impact the double-storey Bowenhall Street facility was having within the community.
“ConnectGV is a community-based organisation that is incredibly well supported, not only by the Shepparton community but by the broader region.” said Mr Drum.
The new facility caters for varying abilities and replaces the old building, currently being demolished. It delivers clients flexibility, greater choice, embraces new technologies and is a safe and inviting space that can be shared with the community. It is a space that will accommodate an increase in client numbers and has been designed to meet the ever-changing landscape of the NDIS that is a market driven insurance model.
ConnectGV CEO, Carolynne Frost, said “Many thanks to each and every community member that helped make this a possibility. Every bit of support has assisted in getting us to this point today!”
ConnectGV began operating 1954 and has grown and evolved to meet individual need. It is committed to becoming a leading and inclusive local disability service and registered NDIS provider, with individual supports, employment, and accommodation offerings.
