A small group of local families concerned about this lack of support decided to do something about it, and proved that where there’s a need there’s a community ready to help. More than forty years later their vision and commitment has evolved into Mpower, a leader across south-west Victoria in providing quality aged and disability services that enable people to have meaningful connections to their communities.
From humble beginnings Mpower has evolved and expanded into a broad-based service that continues to make a positive difference in the lives of people across south-west Victoria.
‘A community inspired and empowered by people of all ages, abilities and differences’
Mpower will at all times focus on our vision and direct all activities towards its achievement. This vision highlights the vast group of people it serves, and the fundamental belief that every person has a right to services that will enable them to lead a fulfilling life.
