Our Background

WHR Allied Health was established in 2012 on the Surf Coast of Victoria to offer clients legitimate client centred Allied Health Services. We now provide supports across the Barwon and Albury/Wodonga regions.

WHR Allied Health – formerly known as Work Health Rehab, was established in 2012 with the goal of offering clients legitimate client centred Allied Health Services. The introduction of the NDIS, and the potential that this offered in our own region was the catalyst to enabling this to occur. Our aim and focus (and slogan!) is to be ‘Effecting Change’ for all of our clients regardless of referral source. Our head office is in Torquay Victoria and we also staff in Albury and surrounds providing Allied Health Services in flexible and efficient ways

We’ve been doing the NDIS thing since 2013 and have seen some amazing progress for lots of clients. There continues to be lots of challenges in the NDIS space, however we’re determined to adapt and evolve alongside the scheme in order to get the best outcomes for our clients. The work history of our team is varied having worked in isolated rural areas in Community Rehabilitation, working with young men following ABI’s in regional areas, being engaged with national firms in assisting with managing their complex compensable (WorkSafe) and non Compensable (self funded injury prevention) clients and providing design advice/modifications on farming equipment/workplaces/homes.

Therapists have worked with the NDIS, Dept of Veteran Affairs, WorkSafe Vic, State Wide Equipment Program, Vehicle Modification Subsidy Scheme, Home/Workplace Modifications, Skills Training and Development, Duty/Task analysis & Modification, Employer Assistance Fund – Workplace Modifications, National Panel of Assessors –DEEWR amongst others.

Historically, we have delivered our consultancy services to a number of Canadian Occupational Rehabilitation Providers, in particular with the merging of a number of businesses, developing/modifying existing staff training and adapting/creating practical policy and procedure manuals and analysing client data and feedback to improve client/therapist relationships.

Mental Health First Aid

We are proud to have attained the status of being assessed as a Gold Skilled Workplace by Mental Health First Aid Australia. We have a goal of having 100% of our Occupational Therapists certified as having completed the 2-day Mental Health First Aid Course and then completing the refresher within the 3-year certificate period. We know that if we look after our staff, they’ll be best placed to look after our clients and our community.
