Tara joined Distinctive Options in 2018 and quickly demonstrated her disability support abilities.
In 2020, Tara took up the Bendigo Coordinator’s role, overseeing participant group supports as well as 1-on-1 individualised supports in the home or in the community. For Tara, this means ensuring participants receive the best possible supports by finding support workers who are best matched to their needs, by mentoring support workers, and by liaising with other services.
