Our Members have a wide range of disabilities with approximate half being wheelchair users who predominantly have spinal cord injuries.
Elba Incorporated, established in 1990, is a not-for-profit disability services organisation. Above all, it is operated by our members, for the benefit of our members.
A group of spinal cord injury patients established Elba. They decided to create an organisation, as the only option was to live at the Quadriplegic Centre in Shenton Park, Western Australia.
They decided to assert their independence and establish an organisation where they were able to manage their funding. This was by the Commonwealth Government, which later transferred to the Disability Service Commission of Western Australia. Specifically, their goal was to live in their own homes with freedom, dignity and choice of support workers/carers.
Our members have a wide range of disabilities. Markedly approximate half are wheelchair users, who predominantly have spinal cord injuries.
We provide support services to enable our members to live in their own homes with independence and dignity. Moreover, our human resources team works in conjunction with each member. They ensure that a suitable support worker is available to work with every individual. As individuals are unique, our HR team strives to match personality, personal needs and care requirements with those of support workers.
Elba can assist individuals with a wide variety of disabilities. We also support their families to establish a personalised, innovative, flexible and sustainable service model. Essentially we work to ensure our members have total control over their decision making, how they use resources, and above all choice.
