Living My Way is a not-for-profit disability service provider that supports people with disabilities to live a self-directed life. We act as champions, advocates and supporters so that our Members can live the life they have always wanted – not allowing their disability to define them and hinder them.
We are a unique disability service provider in Sydney as we are Member based. This means our Members have a voice in the organisation, making their opinions matter.
Our Support Workers use first-hand experiences to support Members directly in their homes. By listening and understanding Members’ needs, we can provide personalised support, share relevant information and work closely with Members to develop various strategies to help them live more meaningful lives.
We believe that having a self-directed life allows us to be who we are, to have aspirations and live a full life. Being independent is about having Choice and Control over your life decisions that take you where you want to be andLiving My Way is the catalyst to help participants get on with life with confidence and independence.
Our vision is a society where people with disabilities have choices and control over their lives. Our mission is to transform the lives of thousands of people with disabilities by delivering high-quality support at scale.
This year has been difficult for everyone and with how COVID-19 has impacted us and changed our lives forever in the past two years, we wanted to come up with a fun idea to bring joy and laughter to celebrate this holiday season. We went around filming different Members and Living My Way staff to create a fun-filled Christmas song.
We made the 12 Days of Living My Way Christmas video in the hope of showing that disabilities don’t put a limit to fun in life. Thank you to all the staff and members who have participated in the making of this video. We all had a common goal of showing the rest of the world that people with disability can enjoy life’s simple joys, and participate in various activities with friends, families and organisations.
The 12 Days of Living My Way video encourages people with disabilities to live their life to the fullest and what goals they can achieve, with a little help. Hoping that people will also be inspired and have fun in the work they are doing as we do. We encourage our Members and staff to always look further and not allow their disabilities to limit them and the life they want to live.
Christmas is the time for family, friends and fun. The video is a collaboration among all the staff of Living My Way and some of our Members to make up for the fact that we couldn’t have large gatherings due to health restrictions. Again, we didn’t allow ourselves to be limited by the pandemic and since we didn’t want to put our staff and members at risk. We thought that a collaborative video to celebrate the spirit of Christmas would be an awesome way to join the community in the holiday spirit.
We surely hope that you enjoy this video. Allow yourself to fall in love with life and live in its beauty. Live as if there is no tomorrow and do not become discouraged, use your disability to move further and push your life to the way you’ve been wanting to live it.
