Yumba Bimbi Support Services was founded in the late 1990’s by a small group of progressive parents who had a vision and wanted to increase professional and local support options for people with disabilities in rural and remote communities.
Since then, Yumba Bimbi Support Services has been enhancing the lives of children and adults with disabilities across the communities of the Central Highlands, Bowen Basin, and Western Queensland regions.
Yumba Bimbi is a local indigenous term meaning “Good Home”. Here, our dedicated team work with people who have a disability, their families, friends, and community to create a good home, good life and support a brighter future.
Today, Yumba Bimbi offers a wide range of services through person-centered active support, that creates choice, opportunities and skills for life. We provide short-term accommodation (respite), supported independent living, assistance with daily living and life skills support, community access employment and education support, and so much more. Yumba Bimbi operates on the premise that everyone’s needs, preferences, and aspirations are different. Our commitment to client choice and family inclusion is well demonstrated through our individualised services, and person-centered principles.
Our aim is to provide people with disability the chance to live, work, and play valued roles within in their community, as independently as possible.
