Person Centred Planning

Minimbah develops person centred plans for each of our clients in consultation with their parents, carers and support people, to assist them to achieve their goals and maximise their potential.

Person Centred Planning at Minimbah


Minimbah was opened in 1983 by a group of parents who previously operated the Karonga Special School. They established a day program for school leavers and named this service Minimbah- “a place of learning”. Minimbah is an Incorporated Association conducted by an elected Board of Directors, a staff team of forty five and a small group of active volunteers. Minimbah is located in Marsfield and operates from purpose built facilities in extensive grounds adjacent to Dunbar Park. We have a fleet of specialty vehicles to enhance community access and social inclusion for all service users. Minimbah services are substantially funded by the NSW Department of Human Services, Ageing, Disability and Homecare. We comply with the NSW Disability Service Standards. Minimbah is open to visitors at any time by arrangement with the office.

Transport Guidelines

Minimbah’s transport policy has been designed to protect clients and staff alike. We ensure every client can be dropped off and picked up each day in a safe and secure way, and provide designated transport safety staff to manage this process. Our staff follow clear procedures as described in our Transport Guidelines and are specifically trained to ensure the safe hand over of clients every time. Please download the Transport Guidelines using the button below, this outlines the part parents, carers, and transport providers can make to ensuring transport safety.
