Leading disability services provider, Rocky Bay, has reached a significant milestone for Western Australia, today celebrating its 80th anniversary.
Synonymous with providing quality disability services, Rocky Bay has proven to be a stalwart in an industry which is undergoing significant change and disruption.
Established in 1938 to assist children living with the effects of Polio, Rocky Bay now offers a variety of services and support to over 3,000 people of all ages living with all disabilities in Western Australia and their families.
With a view to integrating into the communities in which it supports, Rocky Bay has expanded its locations to be closer than ever to its customers over the years, with offices and community hubs located across the Perth metropolitan area from Joondalup to Mandurah.
Rocky Bay CEO Mr Michael Tait said Rocky Bay had been, and would continue to be, an important member of the WA community.
“Our purpose for many years has been to optimise the quality of life for people living with disability, which is no less important today than it was in 1938,” Mr Tait said.
“As the sector continues to experience uncertainty and change as the National Disability Insurance Scheme is rolled-out across the state, we are certain and steadfast about our future and committed to providing our customers with a stable and trustworthy support network for many years to come.
“We are focused on providing our customers with the quality facilities and services they have grown to know and love over the years and ensuring we look for modern and innovative ways to help them reach their goals and live independent and fulfilling lives.
“Rocky Bay wouldn’t be where it is today without our loyal customers, staff, volunteers, board, partners and supporters, and we thank each and every one for their ongoing support and dedication and helping us to realise our vision.
“Rocky Bay is well-placed for a long and bright future, and we look forward to another 80 years serving our customers and the wider WA community.”
An 80th anniversary exhibition and open day will be held on Friday 5 October in Rocky Bay’s Gym located at 60 McCabe Street, Mosman Park between 8.30am and 3pm.
