Montagu was formed in 1990 by a group of parents who had children living with disability. Determined to provide the best life possible for their children, the parent group sought funding to provide supports in a community setting. Some of those families, and their children, continue to be involved with Montagu today.
Montagu has taken a cautious approach to growth, slowly expanding to 5 share-homes, introducing the Community Supports Program in 2015 which has now grown to support around 30 people in their own homes and, more recently, expanding Support Coordination services to the North of the state.
Montagu is governed by a skills-based Board that is responsible for ensuring that the organisation functions in line with the Montagu Constitution which can be found HERE, setting the strategic direction of the organisation Click HERE to see the current Montagu Strategic Plan. Information on current members of the Board can be found HERE. The Board and Management of Montagu produce an Annual Report on the activities of the organisation each year.

As an organisation, we believe in a fair and inclusive society where Human Rights are respected and upheld, community participation is encouraged and supported, lifelong learning leads to improved outcomes, independence, connectedness, and resilience, and where everyone is supported to pursue their dreams and aspirations.
The Purpose of Montagu is to provide high quality individualised services that support people living with disability to live a life that they value, assists them to remain connected to their chosen community and social networks, and helps them to build the skills, courage, and resilience required to follow their dreams.
As a For-Purpose organisation we are guided by our core values, which influence every action we take and every decision we make. Our values are the essential framework on which we base our work practices, our behaviours, our communications, and our interactions with the people we support.
