Our Impact

At OC Connections, we create opportunities and provide expert, empowering support for people living with disability to live the life they choose, within inclusive communities that value who they are. Our specialised services, progressive partnerships and processes, and community connections all work together to support OCC participants to live and contribute with confidence, fulfilment and self-determination, every day and for their futures.

Throughout the 2021/2022 financial year, OC Connections supported over 445 adults living with a disability. We provided over 440,000 hours of support across our services, including Community Living, Day Support, Support Coordination, Employment, and within the City of Casey.
