Melba Support Services is a not-for-profit, community based organisation that supports people who live with a disability to lead everyday lives of their choice.
Recognised as the Yarra Ranges ‘Community Group of the Year, 2013’, Melba recently celebrated 40 years of providing quality, individualised services to people with a range of disabilities.
Our mission, for individuals with a disability to lead everyday lives, underpins every decision, action and communication undertaken at Melba, and helps to ensure that the services we provide value and respect the rights of each person accessing our services, and focuses on each person as an individual.
International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) is celebrated on the 3rd December each year.
Your contribution to this special time in Melba’s history will have a positive impact on the services we provide.
Over 100 volunteers spent the day giving Roland Avenue a major make-over.
After watching Peter Hitchener read the 6pm Channel 9 news for as long as he has been doing so, Peter Cornwell’s dream came true
Melba Support Services is proud and honoured to have been selected to support people living at Bendigo’s Sandhurst Centre to make the transition to their new homes in the community and provide ongoing support services. It will be a great privilege to provide support services to Sandhurst residents and we look forward to working with each person and their families, along with our consortium partner, Karden Disability Support Foundation.

Merger Update 30/6/14
Melba’s merger with Impact Support Services has now been formally approved by Consumer Affairs Victoria (CAV), the State Government body that was required to consider the changes organisational members made to our Rules of Association at Impact’s and Melba’s Special General Meetings.
Pauline Jones saw a need for disability support services in the area 40 years ago, so decided to take charge and create a support group for mothers.
