About Us

In 2000, a group of dedicated people from multicultural backgrounds had a dream to create an independent, community-based organisation to support the seniors in their community.

They wanted to include people of all cultures and communities and ensure everyone felt welcome.

Today, Umbrella Inc. offers over 20 innovative and culturally diverse aged care services, for people over 65 years of age. Our programs support individuals to stay connected and live independently in their homes.

All people are welcome to be part of Umbrella’s family.  Our main focus is to support people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and the LGBTI community.

Umbrella Inc. provides quality personalised care, matching staff, languages and activities with clients.

Services are provided by trained, culturally competent bilingual staff.

We are proud to deliver services that value people, promote inclusion and make a difference.

We are like a family

Our Mission

At Umbrella, we believe everyone has an equal right to enjoy their ‘Golden Years’. We believe language, gender identity, culture or financial status should not be a barrier to accessing quality services.
