What we offer
At Woodville Alliance we provide community and social participation supports suitable for people with high support needs right to those who are relatively independent and interested in further education and employment.
The Earth Centre – this purpose built, state of the art centre provides day support for people with more complex support needs and is at our Mandarin Street base. Clients have access to a kitchen for cooking activities, an exercise area for keeping fit, an arts and crafts area, an IT area and a media/sensory room for quiet times and movies. We also have an outdoor area with bbqs and a garden which our clients enjoy tending with support from a therapeutic horticulturalist. The centre is equipped with changing rooms with hoists and showers. All clients spend time both in the centre and out in the community depending on their preference and we aim to combine fun with capacity building.
Chester Hill Centre – this centre is based in a community building in Chester Hill where we have exclusive use of rooms and are close to local facilities. The clients who attend this centre have lower support needs than those at the Earth Centre and tend to be more independent.
GeekAbility – this program is delivered in partnership with TAFE and Disability Employment Services to provide a pathway to employment, and as such is suitable for people who want to take part in TAFE accredited courses and work experience. As well as education, we focus on developing life skills which will support a person in employment – and on having fun with friends! The program is available in both Fairfield and Liverpool.
Evening Programs – we provide evening programs developed around particular areas of interest guided by our clients. Currently we having a dance program and a health and wellbeing program, and have plans for other evening programs providing opportunities for music and art.
NightOwls – this social program is specifically for young people aged between 18 and 30. We meet on a Friday night to catch up, get out and have fun with age appropriate activities such as karaoke, pool, going to the footie, Holey Moley, seeing bands or perhaps just dinner and a movie. We aim to support this program with staff who are a similar age, and the focus is on supporting our clients to integrate into their local community.
Saturday Social – we don’t let the fun stop just because it’s the weekend! On Saturdays we provide support at the Earth Centre for adults and at Chester Hill for school age children and young adults with disability from Year 7 – Year 12. The day is a mix of trips out into the community and centre based activities according to the interests of clients.
In Home and Individualised Support – if you prefer to have your community access supports in a more individualised environment and are funded to do so, we can provide staff who come to you. Speak to us about how this might work for you.
Support Coordination – we have highly experienced Support Coordinators available who have worked in our community for over a decade and have in depth knowledge of the services available locally.
Transport – we have minibuses, some of which are modified for wheelchairs, to ensure our clients are able to get out and about in the community during our services. We also use these buses to transport some clients to and from the centres. Talk to us about whether we have a transport route available for you – otherwise we can support you to access transport services to and from our centre using other providers.
Short Holidays – we provide short supported holidays for clients which can be paid for through your NDIS plan using short-term accommodation funding. Talk to us if you would like to swap your local respite for a fun experience somewhere new.

COVID-19: Woodville Disability Services Remain Open
In 2020, the Prime Minister clarified that disability services are an essential service to our community, and we will therefore remain open for clients who still require support. The health and well being of our clients and staff is our absolute priority at this time, and we are following all available advice to keep everyone as safe as we can. Together we will get through this tough time. Please give us a call if you have any concerns. Watch the video below to see updates to how we operate.
