TEEM Story

TEEM TREASURE (TT) is a private human service agency established in 2004 by Managing Director John Treasure. John recognised a need for additional services to support People with Disabilities registered with the Disability Services Commission (DSC). The initial target group were people diagnosed with Dual Diagnosis (Intellectual Disability and Mental Health Issues). In the early stages of development the majority of Consumers were transferred from DSC to TT because of the closer of the Commissions’ Supported Accommodation Service Directorate for people with complex needs and challenging behaviours.

Since its inception, TT has grown at a stable rate and currently provides accommodation support options for 40 individuals. TT supports individuals with varying disabilities including: intellectual disability, mental health issues and autism. TT also has a Justice program to support Consumers who are experiencing difficulty with offending behaviour.

The demand for TT services is increasing rapidly from the Disability Sector because of a proven track record in improving the quality of life of disadvantaged community members in Perth WA, including the indigenous community.

In 2008, TT was independently evaluated by a Standards Monitor group employed by DSC. TT met all nine Disability Services Standards, as is a requirement in providing accommodation support to our Consumer base. In 2009, TT was crowned the winner of the Belmont Small Business Awards Community Spirit Category for Service Excellence to its Consumers.
