Meraki Foundation is a Not-For-Profit charity, which provides person centred and strengths-based support for all people in communities across NSW. Meraki Foundation provides social support for children and young people, support for people with disability, and support for communities through specialised programs.
Our staff are experienced within the Social Welfare, Disability and Community sectors. We are passionate about empowering and supporting you. We want to help you live a positive quality of life with independence and pride.
Meraki Foundation was established after many years of experience within the social services industry, providing a vast range of support for young people in need. Meraki Foundation began as a diligent transportation service, organising group transportations for young people of all abilities, to participate in group outings across Sydney.
Now almost 15 years later, Meraki Foundation has expended, and is proud to support people in various communities across NSW, whilst still providing the original transportations that began our passion for providing support. Whilst simultaneously providing one-on-one support for young people and people with a disability, Meraki has discovered a need for more direct, specific programs to be put in place within community settings, alongside social and disability support.
Despite being established in 2009, the staff at Meraki Foundation make up for over 40 years of combined experience in the social, disability, and community services industries. The Meraki team is demographically diverse, with support workers of all ages, qualifications, cultures, locations, and life experiences.
Meraki Foundation support workers continue to up-skill their education and training, with support workers constantly renewing and expanding their knowledge and skill through mini-courses and training days endorsed by the Foundation.
Meraki provides a combination of personalised support services and structured programs.
Personalised support can be tailored to suit your needs, and can include:
Mentoring/Assistance to Access the Community
Supervised Contact Visits
Alternative Care Arrangements
24/7 On Call
Structured programs offered by Meraki are implemented in schools, community groups, and families.
