Helping Hands Disability and Community Services in Sydney

WE ARE AN ORGANISATION FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITY, MENTAL ILLNESS AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ISSUES RUN BY PEOPLE WHO HAVE FIRST-HAND EXPERIENCE LIVING WITH THESE ISSUES THEMSELVES.


Helping Hands is the brainchild of Kadie Kamara, who founded the organisation in 2016. Kadie is originally from Senegal and has extensive experience in providing support to people with disability and mental health illness. After seeing the positive impacts that disability support programmes had in her native country, Kadie decided to bring these practices to the people of Sydney.

The Helping Hands mission is to provide high quality and ethical disability support services to people with disability, mental illness and homelessness within the community here in New South Wales. We aim to empower and support our users to ultimately create a society in which people living with disability, mental health and social issues can fully participate.

We support our service users in their own home in whatever way is needed and advocate on behalf of people living with disability, mental illness and homelessness by providing specialist case management. In addition to this, our team works to develop educational programmes and support services for people with disability and mental illness to ensure they have equal opportunity within the community.

We provide an extensive range of services including community support, respite support and drop-in services. We run supported accommodation programs as well as courses to help young people with disability transition to work and school. A big part of our focus is skills training to develop independent living skills as well as entryways into employment.
