POSITION STATEMENT ON CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC
Xlent Disability Services is committed to supporting our Xlent family of participants and staff through the current situation regarding COVID-19, and are actively monitoring and responding to updates on a regular basis.
A number of control measures have been put in place to aid our staff in minimising the risk of infection, whilst allowing the continuity of our services, wherever it is appropriate and safe to do so.
We have made some necessary changes to venues, activities and support ratio sizes to enable us to operate safely in these challenging times. Our dedicated team of admin staff and support workers are working together to ensure that the updated guidelines are being diligently followed to successfully deliver these changed programs.
We thank you for your continued support and patience and are optimistic that if we all do the right thing and implement the advice of healthcare professionals, NDIS and State / Federal Government, we will be back to operating all our original programs soon.
Please find listed below our current modified programming as well as our normal programs as and when we return to normalcy in the future.
Modified Premium Program (Neighbourhood Program)
- Offer a 1:1 service to existing participants, for a minimum of 3 hours per day.
- Continue offering special 1:1 programs through the school holiday period.

Football Idol Makes
A Dream Come True
Shaun had his dream come true recently when he was visiting Adelaide Oval as part of an organised activity by Xlent Disability Services. Shaun, who is a passionate Adelaide Crows supporter, was thrilled when he met his football idol. Although it had been a goal for many years, never did he expect to come face to face with his favourite player, Eddie Betts. Shaun was very grateful to Xlent for facilitating his long-term wish.

Xlent celebrates the differing abilities of people and promotes the empowerment of individuals with a disability to Experience, Learn and Succeed.
We provide innovative day programs for adults and school holiday services for all ages. These focus on educational outcomes, recognising that each person is unique and deserves an equal opportunity to develop.
Xlent Disability Services educate participants in personal training, life skills, adventure skills and environmental awareness. This is achieved through holistic experiential and adventure based program design. Our priority is to provide uncompromising customer service and value for money to make a real difference to people’s lives.
We are currently developing a three year strategic plan to guide the organisation through the implementation of the National Disability Insurance Scheme. As a key stakeholder, we invite you to join our consultative panel to help provide feedback before it is endorsed by our Board of Management. Please email [email protected] if you wish to assist
