About Us

About Us

DCIRS Community care is a business located in Donald, Victoria, providing essential supports to people in need. The organisation was founded in April of 2020 and has rapidly grown into a vital service for the Buloke shire and surrounds, supporting those with NDIS and Aged care home packages.

Since starting, DCIRS has grown to currently provide 15 local jobs, and service 40 participants and clients. Both of these numbers are growing rapidly.

DCIRS prides itself on carefully selected values for both employees and participants/clients and the acronym promotes these values as seen below.

We pride ourselves on keeping things local and personal!

From the participant/client perspective
D - Determination All participants are encouraged to use their determination to achieve their goals
C - Courage All participants are commended on their courage to overcome obstacles
I - Independence All participants' independence is priority at all times
R - Resilience Participants have overcome hurdles throughout their lives. We respect their resilience in the face of adversity
S - Strength All participants are respected for their strengths and capabilities
From a staff perspective
D - Dignity We treat our participants with dignity
C - Compassion We display compassion and empathy for all
I - Integrity Honesty, trust and integrity are maintained at all times. This includes confidentiality outside of DCIRS realms
R - Respect We respect ourselves, our workplace, each other and most importantly the people we work with
