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.

Melba Support Services today announced that it would be merging with Karden Disability Support Foundation, based in Ballarat. Melba Chair Dr John Annison said, “We particularly chose Karden to merge with because we share similar mission, philosophy and values that focus on respect, treating people with dignity and human rights. The care and wellbeing of the individuals supported by both organisations are our priority. It has been critical to ensure that there won’t be any change to the services they receive, nor the high-quality service we provide.”
