Community Gift: Kirinari Community Services
This Autumn the @ The Coalface $300 Community Gift goes to Kirinari Community Services, an organisation throughout regional NSW providing care and community services for disadvantaged youth, the elderly, people with a disability, and the broader community.
Kirinari offer a full range of support in aged care, transport and disability services, providing tailored solutions via qualified, experienced and enthusiastic employees.
In 1983, the need for vital disability accommodation services in regional NSW was realised by a dedicated group of people. From this Kirinari was born and their first house, named ‘Nurioopta’, was leased in West Albury, NSW.
Kirinari has continued to invest in communities ever since and has been providing accommodation services to Northern NSW for over 20 years, with many more houses bought, built or leased to provide innovative accommodation solutions.
Stuart George, Kirinari’s Business Development Manager based in Northern NSW says, “Kirinari’s philosophy is to empower their community to achieve full potential in their lives with comprehensive programs, innovative accommodation solutions, adaptive technology and community support.”
As a registered NDIS provider, Kirinari offer leading edge, innovative solutions to NDIS participants across accommodation, transport, support coordination, behaviour support, community access, day programs, plan management, support coordination and youth services.
Through My Aged Care, they are a registered provider of Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP); Home Care Services (HCS) level 1,2,3 & 4; Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) Home Care Services; and Fee for service.
Stuart says that Kirinari has identified a pressing need for Disability Accommodation services throughout Northern NSW. “The most recent development for Kirinari in NNSW is the acquisition of an STA home in Gunnedah which is very exciting,” said Stuart.
“This home will provide respite and short to medium term accommodation for Gunnedah and surrounding areas.
“The Community Gift received by Kirinari from @The Coalface will contribute to the identification of additional Short Term Accommodation and Supported Independent Living solutions for people with a disability currently residing in Gunnedah and who would like to continue living in the region, but at the moment do not have access to the appropriate supports.”
