The Story of Aspire Hub

“My name is Valerie and I live with a brain injury as a result of a Brain Bleed about 18 months ago, like a lot of people, the only people who are able to care for me – ongoing are my husband and a small extended family that to be honest we have not involved in my day-to-day care. I guess you value your independence (at your peril at times). The biggest problem I can see is something that I am aware of called Carer Fatigue or Burnout. Believe me when I say, it is real and unfortunately for most Carers, goes unrecognised or supported.

Thankfully, we were able to get in touch with Aspire Hub and that contact has changed our everyday markedly, we don’t feel like we are unsupported and have taken advantage of the opportunity to have a break (respite) from our everyday.

I have just completed my first 4-day respite and I have to say I am warmly impressed at the care, attention to detail, the lovely home we stayed in and every step of the way, being 100 percent supported… the carers are awesome, kind, thoughtful, considerate and read your needs so well. It is refreshing to experience such a positive and ‘can do’ attitude.”

Aspire Hub client – Valerie

Founded in 2020 by experienced disability industry professionals and husband-wife duo, Chris and Cherryl Joseph, Aspire Hub was born out of a passion to bring a better experience to NDIS participants, like Valerie.

Today, Valerie and her family are just some of the many happy participants who have benefited from receiving support with Aspire Hub.

Aspire Hub understands the challenges involved in navigating plans and finding support but also recognises the importance of increasing the level of connection between providers, participants, their carers and family members. That’s why the team at Aspire Hub is excited to be once again sponsoring the Developing Australian Communities Disability Connection Expo – this time in beautiful, sunny Perth!

Previously working in various roles throughout the industry including as a Support Coordinator, Service Manager, Community Development Officer and Respite Centre Manager for leading disability support organisations, Chris and Cherryl developed a deep understanding of the sector, what worked and what could be improved.

Not long after meeting, Chris and Cherryl started their dream for what would ultimately become Aspire Hub – a family-run organisation with a genuine people-first approach, and desire to continually improve and innovate.

Chris and Cherryl’s commitment to their staff, clients and the whole Aspire Hub family is what drives them to be better every day.

What started as a few homes in south east Queensland has now grown to what Aspire Hub offers today – supported accommodation, community nursing, community participation and child safety residential care for more than 100 clients in Queensland and Western Australia.

Since expanding to Perth in 2022, Aspire Hub has been busy growing a local team of experienced professionals that share Chris and Cherryl’s passionate approach to supporting participants.

As a Gold Sponsor of the 2023 Perth Disability Connection Expo, sponsored by St Jude’s NDIS, the Aspire Hub team can’t wait to meet fellow like-minded providers, participants and their support network.

Make sure you come along to the Aspire Hub booth and say g’day to the team! Don’t forget to register here!
