How we work

The PEBBLES service is funded by the Disability Services Commission and managed by Therapy Focus in partnership with Bladder and Bowel Health Australia.

Services are delivered by qualified healthcare professionals including nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, dietitians and psychologists who have a wealth of knowledge in continence issues and disability. The PEBBLES Team works collaboratively with families, education staff, other Therapy Focus therapists and health care professionals to provide the individuals with a support framework that caters to their needs.

PEBBLES services are delivered via home and school visits, as well as from clinics located in Cockburn (Rocky Bay clients), Fremantle, Maddington, Mirrabooka and Mandurah. Regional visits are available for families living in regional and remote areas of WA, in addition to telephone, video and web conferencing.
