Details

Minda Incorporated was the new name for Minda Home from 1976. During the 1970s changes to government policy on institutional care led to the gradual movement of many residents from the Home into the community. The organisation however continued to expand its residential accommodation and also developed employment and other services in the community and at the Brighton site.

Minda Incorporated was still operating in 2014 providing support, accommodation, training, employment, aged care and respite services for people living with a disability.
