Aspire Disability Group has its roots in Supported Holidays, our Director Simon started out as travel agent working for Spencer Travel Group 12 years ago.Shortly after this, Simon’s cousin who has a disability wanted to holiday and when starting to plan this, he realised how few options there were for people with a disability wanting to go on holiday and so Aspire Supported Holidays was born.
However, as his business began to grow, Simon noticed there was a lack of companies providing day support, he wanted to provide that service in a very compassionate way and started to build a family of employees who felt the same way. Simon wants his company to support people through the unknown and equip them with the knowledge and skills of applying for, and utilising the National Disability Scheme (NDIS), so that they can have the best plan possible, and a plan that meets their needs, utilising a range of services that suit the client the best. Aspire Disability group also offers the Woodrising Day Program, headed up by Mel, who has been at Woodrising for the past 3 years. Woodrising is a group program that teaches life skills such as cooking and cleaning in a fun, social and supportive group environment.
Aspire Disability group also offers Day Support, Support in the Community, Social Participation, Short Term Accommodation and Respite as well as having a great team of COS ( Co Ordination of Supports). We are based in the Newcastle, Maitland, Port Stephens and Northern Rivers Regions.
