About Us

Four decades ago, a group of mothers met in a church hall in Cheltenham with concern for their soon-to-be-adult children with disabilities.

At the same time, Allan T. Marriott, a long-time local resident, saw the gap in disability services for local people with intellectual disability, and donated a substantial amount of money that enabled the purchase of land in the heart of McKinnon. In 1985 a purpose-built facility, our Community Hub, was opened on that site.

This act of generosity lives with us every day.

Since then, Marriott Support Services has steadily grown in opportunities for people with intellectual disability and autism. Our place in the local south-east Melbourne community is well established across Glen Eira, Kingston and Bayside, Monash, Port Phillip and Stonnington local government areas.

The people we support, and their families and carers come from a wide area including the suburbs of Highett, Bentleigh, Brighton, Oakleigh, McKinnon, Moorabbin, Cheltenham, Mentone and Caulfield.

Today we employ over 110 people with disability in supported employment and we support 130 people in our community day programs.

We are small enough to get to know you and your strengths, big enough to have a range of supports to develop those strengths, and have the systems and expertise to deliver quality supports.

Marriott is here to assist you in leading a connected, healthy and independent life, through a wide range of employment, training, volunteering, social and recreational opportunities.

Our staff are well trained, motivated and bring different skills and life experience from previous careers and many staff stay with us for a long time.

Our community connections include valued partnerships with Glen Eira Sports and Aquatic Centre in East Bentleigh, Mentone Lifesaving Club, Mordialloc Neighbourhood House and Fairway Aged Care facility in Sandringham. We value these community connections that help us offer more options for you to reach your goals.

Inclusion of people with disability in the community generates opportunities for employment, volunteering, participation in further education and social connections.

Our dynamic group of over 70 volunteers enables us to do that little bit more, through their generosity.

Our Community Hub is a day program based in McKinnon and is close to public transport. From here we provide small group and individual supports in health and wellbeing, life skills, recreation, volunteering support and engagement with the community.

Our business enterprises, Marriott Industries and Enviro Management Services support people with disability in employment and are based in Cheltenham.

Marriott Support Services is an NDIS registered organisation.
