What’s in a name?

Over the years, the organisation has been known by a variety of names. It was familiar to many across the decades as Urimbirra, and more recently as South Eastern Disability Services and Options Victoria. By 2013, the organisation’s programs were well known in the south eastern suburbs, with employment services under the name Paramount and various support services run through Kalimna, Urimbirra and The Hub. Leisure Link Up focused on sport, active recreational programs and community events.

In 2013, all of these services were unified under one name, The Bridge. Drawing the organisation together in this way aimed to make an enduring connection between the vision and mission, ideals and plans, and the services that made them happen. The newly energised community celebrated with a big launch event in December of that year.
