Occupational Therapist - Immediate Start

It’s our birthday year!

We began in 1951 as a small group of parents who formed an organisation looking for an innovative way to access care and support for their children with Cerebral Palsy. Fast forward to 2021, we’re celebrating our 70th birthday and are recognised as one of WA’s leading disability service providers. Our sector has changed a lot over the years, and we have too. What remains the same is our dedication to our customers. We’re a not for profit with purpose, an organisation with a heart.

How you’ll make a difference

Our team of Occupational Therapists work with customers to provide an excellent service from our hubs in Coolbinia, Canning Vale, Currambine and Malaga, and out in the community. Our therapy teams are transdisciplinary, so you’ll connect with and learn from other therapists, with a wide range of skills and experience. We are proud to offer contemporary, evidence-based services, underpinned by strength-based, person/family-centred philosophy. Come join us – we are a down-to-earth, passionate team who collaboratively work towards goals identified by our customers and their families.
