Funding only goes so far, and waiting lists for services continue to grow. We just don't have enough resources to cope with demand, which means people (including children) are missing out on vital support.

Thank you for your generous support of people with disability.

Kate has Down syndrome; she has poor muscle tone and difficulty with her speech. She needs help with self-care, cooking, transport and communication.

When Kate turned 18, school was no longer an option. Kate didn't have the capactiy to work, but she needed stimulation, learning and friends. So, she went on to participate in day options at a local disability support provider.

Kate's family say it was like falling off a cliff. When Kate left school, she wasn't happy and they didn't know what they were going to do.

Their lives changed when they found Minda.

Having access to the right support can mean the world to families like Kate's. So much so, that Michael and Liz made the big decision to move to Adelaide - and they haven't looked back.

Fortunately, we were able to find a place for Kate at Minda and she started going to day programs.

Kate now spends her days learning a variety of skills in gardeing, cooking, arts and fitness.

One of Liz and Michael's major concerns for Kate was her independence and making sure she is okay if they are not able to care for her.

Thanks to our supporters, we have recently updated our site at Brighton to include purpose-built accommodation for people with disability.

Just last year, we were able to offer a place for Kate.

It is only with your support that we are able to truly provide the care we aspire to, which is extraordinary; far beyond a roof overhead and a table to sit at. People with disability and their families deserve to have opportunities for a great life.

If you are able, I hope you will show your support with a donation today. You will be making a wonderful difference.
