About Melba

Melba Support Services is a not-for-profit, community based organisation that supports people who live with a disability to lead lives of their choice.

Melba currently provides support in the eastern and southern regions of Melbourne.  Our head office is located on Melba Avenue, Lilydale and our regional office (opening in 2016) will be located in Dandenong.

Accredited by the Council on Quality and Leadership, USA, Melba became the first Australian organisation to be accredited under CQL’s Person-Centred Excellence “with Distinction” quality framework.

The introduction of the NDIS will further support Melba to continue to provide a range of services designed to give people with disabilities greater independence and control over their own lives. Services include:

  • Community Living Support Services (accommodation)
  • Community Connections (day services)
  • Individualised Support Arrangements
  • Practical support in everyday life skills
  • Assistance in pursuing and accessing vocational, education and employment goals
  • Respite care that provides planned breaks for carers, and
  • Assessing communication difficulties and sourcing practical solutions.

Recognised as the Yarra Ranges ‘Community Group of the Year, 2013’, Melba is proud of its almost 45 year history providing quality, individualised services to people with a range of disabilities.
