What would you like to achieve? No matter your goal, big or small, we know that you can do it – and we want to help you get there!

Disabilities are not disadvantages to be endured. They are challenges to be boldly met, achievements to be made and adventures in the making. So, to make the most of every opportunity that comes your way, we’ve got a wide range of disability support services.

At genU, we help people with a disability to be the best that they can be. And with over 65 years of experience, we like to think we’re pretty good at providing disability care services.

Before we brag about all of our disability support services, including disability employment services and disability individual support, we’d like to make some commitments to you.

Who has the time to wait around on the phone? We don’t, and we know you don’t either. So, call our friendly team directly on 1300 558 368 and we’ll action your request within 48 hours.

There’s nothing useful about “one-size-fits-all” methods. We’re on team YOU. We’ll help you to identify your goals and put tangible steps in place to achieve them. We’re in it for the long-haul and will give you ongoing advice that grows with you.

You shouldn’t have to be on the lookout for sneaky hidden costs when choosing a provider, and with genU, you won’t be. From day one we’ll help you maximise the value you receive, meaning no hidden costs and fully optional extras. 

Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day; teach a person to fish and you feed them for a lifetime. You are capable and you don’t need us doing things for you. Rather, we aim to support you along the way and empower you with the skills you need to achieve your goals.

Live the life you choose – that’s the core motivation for our services. We’ll give you active one-on-one support for daily life so that you can keep your independence and easily reach your goals in the most comfortable way.

It’s important to stay engaged with the world around us. We offer a wide range of disability recreation services both in-person and online with genU Participate online. Enjoy arts, crafts, cooking, gaming and music – just to name a few!

Building a social group and developing key skills can be tricky. But, if you’re aged under 25, our youth programs can help you navigate your way to becoming the best you that you can be!
