Overton House

Supporting people living with a disability to meaningfully engage with the community, socially connect and enjoy life.

Overton House in Muswellbrook is all about giving you the skills you need to live your best life.

We offer a wide range of program and services for all ages and will work with you to tailor services to meet your needs that will ultimately give you greater independence.

Overton House helps you to:

 Have positive relationships

 Feel a sense of belonging

 Retain individual autonomy

 Have active involvement in decision-making

 Actively engage with the community

 To use your strengths in ways that provide a challenge

 Be proud and being able to make a contribution.

At Overton House, we can try removing some of the barriers you may face to living the life you want, such as:

  • Negative attitudes that view disability as a tragedy, and people with disability as dependent
  • Service models that congregate people and segregate them from community
  • Individualised support that acts as a paid friend rather than as a life facilitator, and
  • Risk management approaches that deprive people of ordinary opportunities.
