About Us

For more than 50 years we have been providing disability support services to those who need them most.

By offering a range of local services, we provide the best for our clients. We listen to your needs and take action to support them. Our primary aim is for you to reach your full potential and live a satisfying and productive life.

Best Practice

Our support is based on best practice that is proven to achieve positive outcomes for people with physical and intellectual disability. Our Practice Framework for Disability Services is based on:

  • Person-centred approaches
  • Inclusive practices
  • Active support
  • Positive behaviour support approaches

We have a proud history of offering accommodation and support to Tasmanian people with intellectual and physical disabilities.

St Michaels began back in 1966, providing specialist education to students in the Launceston area. We have grown into a respected not-for-profit organisation with participants in multiple locations across North-East Tasmania.

St Michaels provides opportunities for people with intellectual and/or physical disabilities to thrive and grow in their independence. We offer residential options and Day Programs with integrated daily living skills that support you to achieve your goals and reach your full potential.

We are an NDIS service provider, offering you the chance to maximise choice and control over your supports.

Our Mission:

To support the physical and emotional needs of participants and their families through the provision of personalised activities, training programs and accommodation services of the highest quality.

Our Vision:

Excellence in supporting diversity for people with disability.

Our Values:

Accountability – we take responsibility for our actions

Communication – we make sure the lines of communication between staff, participants, family members and carers are open, clear and direct at all times

Fairness – we make judgments free from discrimination or dishonesty

Non-judgmental – we accept every aspect of our participants’ experience as part of their identity

Innovation – we strive to continually improve our service, using the latest industry research and technology

Respect – we treat every participant the way we would wish to be treated

Teamwork – a good team is greater than the sum of its parts. We value each member’s skills as part of the whole, working together to give participants the best possible service
