At Vivid, we believe that providing quality disability support is about listening, understanding and ultimately assisting people to achieve their goals. We are dedicated to providing tailored support based on individual needs.

With sites at Echuca, Kerang, Swan Hill and Kyabram, Vivid provides opportunities and support across a wide region of Northern Victoria.

Our values underpin everything that we do. They are: Growth; Innovation; Respect & Integrity; Teamwork and Fun!

From a small group of parent carers who came together in 1967 to create a better life for their children, to the visionary Dr James Alexander, Vivid has a strong and proud history across Northern Victoria.
