Who we are

About us

Novita provides rehabilitation, therapy, early intervention, community inclusion, assistive technology and disability services to people living with disability, as well as support for their families and carers. We support kids, young people and adults in Adelaide, regional South Australia and beyond.

Novita is one of South Australia’s largest and most respected community-based disability service organisation supporting kids, young people and adults.

Founded in 1939, Novita supports people living with disability through our four service pillars of Therapy, Accommodation, Community Programs, and Assistive Technology.

Our services are delivered by highly-skilled and professional staff, who are focused on supporting our valued clients and delivering an exceptional customer experience.

Novita has evolved as the National Disability Insurance Scheme has brought generational change to disability service delivery.

Novita’s Strategic Plan - underpinned by our values - ensures our evolution continues so that we can deliver the best possible outcomes for our clients and their families and carers.

Reconciliation Action Plan - Reflect

Novita’s Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan is the start of our journey as an organisation to dedicating ourselves to learning, sharing, and actively supporting the wisdom and participation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in the Novita community.

Our Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan will provide a space in our everyday conversations to recognise, build and improve the cultural appropriateness of our organisation. Through this we will develop a better understanding of how Novita can drive reconciliation in our sphere of influence.

Our long-term aim is to support self-determination and equity in partnership with our employees and clients by implementing practical actions that embody culturally safe policies, practices and environments.

Clinical Governance

Clinical governance is the collective systems, processes and behaviours that enable the Novita Board, Executive, Management teams and care delivery staff to ensure safe, high-quality and client-centred services.

This includes the culture in which the system operates, the processes through which risks are managed, incidents reported and feedback heard and acted upon in the pursuit of clinical excellence and continuous improvement.

The Novita Clinical Governance model is based on five key domains, critical to achieving our strategic objectives. Novita services are highly diverse, spanning therapy, community programs, accommodation supports, and assistive technology in urban and regional environments. The Clinical Governance Framework seeks to apply a quality and safety lens across all services in all settings.
