The Journey

Inclusion Melbourne has had a unique and proud journey

Formed in the late 1940’s as the Gawith Villa, where a group of revolutionary parents came together to find an alternative to the institutional care that was the only option being offered at the time.

Inclusion Melbourne’s transformation from the old day service model to personalised services commenced in the early 1990s, placing the organisation ahead of the sector for disability support, and as a leader under the current NDIS climate

Today Inclusion Melbourne provides a range of personalised services to more than 120 adults in the areas of support coordination, direct support, community visitation, volunteering and specialities in learning and training courses

Through best practice research and innovation, Inclusion Melbourne provides leadership to both state and federal governments in policy development and sector reform.

There is a lot of heart in our organisation, and we readily share our values, seeing the potential in a person’s future. It is all about having a ‘good life’
