Wild Rumpus Community Services provide a range of support options for children and young people who have a disability. We provide support with an emphasis on increasing skill development and social opportunities - offering individuals more flexibility and creativity in their supports. Wild Rumpus have launched a number of programs, which were developed based on the needs and interests of families we support. They include programs to gain greater social and community awareness on weekends and after-school, weekend camps, Geelong's largest special needs holiday program, a sibling support program, as well as a range of capacity-building services available through our Skill Development Hub.
Wild Rumpus first launched in September 2012 by founding member James Asciak, who has worked for 14 years supporting young people with a disability. As The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) rolls out, we see a greater number of people with a disability have more opportunities to access meaningful supports.
Wild Rumpus have a passion for providing innovative options in order to support people with a disability and their families in new and creative ways, discovering new ways of providing traditional disability supports. We work tirelessly at developing new programs, trialing new ideas, and placing ourselves as the next generation of disability support providers. Wild Rumpus is a small service without a bloated management system - so the people supporting you are the ones shaping the service we provide.
We are not an NDIS registered provider - so participants need to self-manage or plan-manage the Core Supports budget in their plans in order to purchase services from us using their NDIS supports.
