We are a Not For Profit organisation established to work with people who have a cognitive disability and come from a disadvantaged background.

Typically people who are referred to SA Support Services,

  • Individuals eligible for services from Disability and/or Mental Health Services,
  • Individuals with complex and unmet behavioural support needs,
  • Individuals with Criminal Justice System history,
  • Individuals with a history of homelessness,
  • Individuals who are currently living in secure care.


Our core business is to provide a robust 24/7-accommodation service, based on the Group Home Model employed by Disability Services. However within this accommodation service operates developmental independent living skill and community re-integration programs.

These programs are all part of the model of support employed by SA Support Services. Called Stepping Stones, this model outlines a pathway from institutional or secure care living, to safe and self-determined life as part of their community. The model has a well being focus, recognising that all people with disabilities have access to not only the fundamental human rights regarding safety, security, housing, health, equality, access, and recognition, but that also consideration and effort are directed toward an individuals’ rights to self determination, expression of opinion, and to be actively engaged in activities of choice and meaningful roles within the community.
