What’s in a Name?
A Sense of Place has many definitions. We define it as a unique collection of a person’s abilities and characteristics that together help them feel a sense of place within themselves and their world.
It is feeling a sense of having a place to belong; emotionally, spiritually and physically. This connection to place is vital to our sense of identity and our feeling a sense of purpose.
This name resonates deeply with us. How does one feel a sense of place when their life decisions are out of their hands? We want to work with people to help them take control of their lives. We want to show people the choices they have and what is possible.We believe in strong community connections and we are committed to outcomes and delivering on our word.
With the country transitioning to the National Disability Insurance Scheme, the opportunity for innovating service provision is alive.
We have taken this opportunity to start something new, something to make a difference in the lives of people living with a disability.
Our vision is for everybody to recognise their ability to create their own life. At A Sense of Place, we want everyone to live their life with purpose, to create their sense of place.
We will push the boundaries and set the benchmark, to challenge ourselves and the sector to empower people living with a disability to live the life they choose.
