Individualised Options 

For People With A DisAbility

ConnectGV is a registered NDIS provider committed to providing individualised options for local people with a disability and their families to ensure their goals and dreams can be achieved. The organisation has grown and evolved over the years to become a leading disability service within the Goulburn Valley that offers Individual Supports, Employment and Accommodation. ConnectGV's vision is for a fully inclusive community and to that end it seeks partnerships that allow it to offer many of these options within the local community.

 

ConnectGV also owns and operates a number of Social Enterprises, namely Billabong Garden Complex, Billabong Sweets and Treats, Flower Power flower deliveries, GV Ragz, ConnectGV Works and it manages the canteen at Mooroopna Primary School. These businesses not only provide quality products and services to the local community, they provide valuable paid employment and training options for people with a disability. READ MORE

Coronavirus COVID-19 Information

We are now operating in Stage 3 Restrictions. ConnectGV remains committed to providing participants and families support in any way it can. Staying connected during these times can be difficult, you need to reach out to us please contact reception on 5821 2466, or go fill out the enquiry form on this website.
 

Wearing of face masks in any public place in Regional Victoria became a new mandatory directive on 3 August 2020. ConnectGV has implemented this across the organisation. All participants are encouraged to also wear a mask in line with government guidelines. We understand, however, a small number of participants will find this difficult to understand or struggle to communicate when wearing a mask. In these instances, we will work together with participants, families and participant’s allied health professional/GP on how best to support them during these times to reduce the spread of COVID-19. More information regarding the wearing of face masks can be found by clicking on the following links -

Accommodation Services
In our accommodation services, the guidelines are one visitor per day for only one hour. Masks are to be worn at all times by visitors and staff. Residents in their own home are not required to wear a mask. Please call the facility your family member resides in to arrange your visit prior. Sign in and complete the declaration.

Day Options
In our Day Options we continue to provide support to participants in a variety of ways

If you are able to comply with social distancing:

- you may attend Day Options to participate in face to face activities (Maximum of 20 participants per day)

If you are unable to comply with social distancing:

- 1:1 support can be provided to access the community for the purpose of exercise and grocery shopping or health appointments.

All participants have the option to participate in Online Sessions. This is a great way to stay connected while remaining safe. 
Please note:

- An agreed new schedule of support is required prior to delivery of supports.

- Participants are required to organise transport to and from Day Options
