About Us

Empowered Community Services was founded by Jonathon Power in 2017. Inspired by his own experiences supporting both parents who have lifelong disabilities, Jonathon became a Disability Support Worker. After working in the industry for several years, Jonathon felt that individuals with complex needs were not receiving the necessary support to be included in the community – here, the idea for Empowered was born.

We deliver high-quality, individualised support under the NDIS that helps people with a disability build capacity and independence whilst ensuring they have every opportunity to participate in their community.

Our services are delivered by a team of passionate and experienced staff who are committed to making a difference in the lives of the people we support.

We work closely with our participants and their families to develop tailor-made support plans that meet their individual needs and goals.

Our team focuses on developing strong relationships with participants, their families and the community. We have regular check-ins with staff and Participants. We ensure that goals are being worked toward and any changes or challenges are communicated with staff to receive the best possible support on your NDIS journey with us.

Empowered Community Services is a values-based organisation, and our team lives by our values of consistency, development, diversity, trust, understanding and respect.


Our Focus is on People

People may have some differences, but people are just like us. Just like our Participants, our staff are diverse, and each has their own interests and backgrounds, which enables us to provide the best and most appropriate staff to assist our Participants in reaching their goals and aspirations.

All of our staff are trained to national standards and complete our own in-house training. Staff are trained on a variety of different topics, including disability awareness, mental health, and disability inclusion.

We aim to put our Participants at the heart of the decision-making process throughout their time at Empowered. By including our Participants in the decision-making process, we aim to exercise their choice and control over their desired service. Services ensure that each Participant is an active and belonging member of their community and enable them to contribute in some way, shape or form.

Since the beginning of Empowered, we have always promoted real-world experiences that enable Participants to share ordinary places. We understand that our Participants are more than Participants. They are people, each with their own story and background. One of the great things about our Support Workers is they get to discover those stories!

Core Values

Empowered strongly believes that consistent hard work leads to successful outcomes.

Our services are committed to the ongoing development of service delivery and growth of our Participants.

Empowered will respect and value the diversity of employees and Participants.

Trust ensures that we can make complex things possible.

If we do not understand, how can we contribute? To collaborate well we must understand ourselves and each other.

When we respect someone for who they are, it enables them to be their ideal self.
