Flintwood Disability Services was incorporated in 1999 and began life as a day program in 2000. It grew from an initiative begun by a group of dedicated parents and workers from Holroyd School. When Holroyd School was at risk of losing its day program, Flintwood was established to tender for the TRAILS day program. It was successful and began with its life as a single day program in Westmead.
The name Flintwood was derived from the surnames of Holroyd school’s Principal and Vice Principal: Anne Flint and John Woodford. They were the founders of the TRAILS program which was created to support young adults leaving school into further Post School Programs.
Since 2000 Flintwood has continued to grow, and today is a service provider as part of the NDIS. We now provide a range of services for NDIS participants including share accommodation, short term accommodation, therapies, and day programs.
Flintwood covers the geographic region of North West Metropolitan Sydney, from Brookvale to Concord to the Blue Mountains.
Underlying everything we do at Flintwood is our goal to create and enhance opportunities for people with disabilities. We’re committed to working with individuals (and their families) and we support your right to be independent and make your own decisions on how you want to live your life.
We continually strive to employ the most skilled and motivated people and our staff receive ongoing training and support. We want to be certain that every service we offer you is provided at the highest standard.
