Brick by Brick Services Pty Ltd (BxB) is a privately owned and operated company that follows a social enterprise model of operations. Working side-by-side with participants, our partners and one another, we’re attempting to redefine what support looks like under the current NDIS funding model to provide market leading clinical and community services. Brick by Brick Benalla provides support services to a wide range of participants to promote better living outcomes based on individual goals. The core services provided cover: Autistic support and community education, mental health, social engagement and participation and Allied Health services including report writing and delivery.
What drives us:
BxB is an innovative company that supports people living with disability, particularly Autistic individuals, to live in a way that is adaptive, engaging and allows freedom of expression. The support services provided at the Brick by Brick Benalla Wellbeing Hub are designed to be adaptive, personalised and interactive and specifically recognise that the Autistic community have an overrepresentation in statistics for mental disorders, family disengagement, school drop out and social isolation. Brick by Brick operates outside the funding cycles of government agencies and therefore can deliver ongoing, flexible and adaptive therapies and services. This approach allows Autistic identity to be supported and celebrates in a safe space, and develops community understanding of the needs of neurodiverse individuals and their families. Brick by Brick aims to be an inclusive, wrap-around model of support for those living with disability.
