Yumba Bimbi Support Services was founded in the late 1990’s by a small group of progressive and visionary parents who wanted to increase professional and local support options and opportunities for people with disabilities in our 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, we work together with people with disability, families, friends, community and our dedicated team to create a good home, good life and support a brighter future.
Today, Yumba Bimbi offers a wide range of services through person-centred, 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-centred 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.
