Our Vision

‘Back in 1982, MDS envisioned a world where people with a disability participated fully in society and were valued and empowered to realise their potential.’ This vision that Macarthur Disability Services began in 1982 has continued to inspire our aims and goals and has enabled MDS to become a premier non-profit community organisation in the Macarthur region. With operations across South West Sydney and the Southern Highlands, MDS continues to lead the way in their person centred approaches to service delivery.
