We are pleased to announce that we have opened a new disability services centre in Elizabeth Vale to enhance our support for people in northern Adelaide. 

CEO of The Benevolent Society, Lin Hatfield Dodds and Mayor Glen Docherty of the City of Playford officially opening the Elizabeth Vale Office
There has been a significant increase in people needing disability services in this area and we have responded by relocating from our Salisbury site to offer a larger and more accessible local centre. 
Located adjacent to Lyell McEwin Hospital, the new centre has 20 staff providing services to more than 250 clients. It offers purpose-built treatment spaces, a fully equipped therapy kitchen, and large multipurpose rooms for more group-based therapy programs. 
The Benevolent Society’s CEO, Lin Hatfield Dodds, Mayor Glen Docherty – City of Playford, members of our fantastic staff and clients officially opened the centre at a special event hosted earlier this month.  
“Increasing our services to meet more people and families at their point of need is a key focus for our organisation, and this new centre in Elizabeth Vale will do just that,” said Lin. “We have longer term plans to expand our services even more so in Adelaide.” 
The Benevolent Society provides allied health therapy, behaviour support services and support coordination to people with disabilities at all ages. This includes: 

  • Assisting children with complex communication needs. 
  • Developing social and motor skills to meet people’s everyday living and community participation needs. 
  • Assisting people with disability to coordinate accessing supports under their NDIS plans. 
  • Music therapy to address the integrated physical, emotional, cognitive and social needs of people.
