A unique strength of PUSPADI Bali is that the organisation is 75% staffed by local Balinese people with physical disabilities. This is viewed as an organisational strength as our staff understand the complexity of living with a disability and are great role models within the community. “By Us For Us!”
The four members of the Management Team include our Director, administration manager, finance manager and driver. PUSPADI Bali’s management team continues its focus on training and professional excellence, as well as opportunities for developing capacity, to ensure best practise and quality services are provided.
Community Outreach Team
Consisting of five team members – four community co-ordinators and one physiotherapist, the Community Outreach team have been part of PUSPADI Bali from its beginning in 1999. Originally seeing 191 clients in the first year, they now identify and assess in excess of 650 clients per year. They personally understand the needs of our clients and are experts when it comes to assessing, measuring and providing mobility aids.
Prosthetics & Orthopedics Workshop Team
The P&O Workshop has a team of seven, comprising four technicians and three prosthetists and orthotists. Starting operations in 2004, our wellestablished P&O workshop team locally manufacture, distribute, maintain and repair protheses, braces, ankle and foot orthoses and other assistive mobility devices. Three of our prosthetists and orthotists studied at Jakarta School Of Prostestics & Orthotics – the first training centre in Indonesia for rehabilitation specialists.
Wheelchair Program Team
The Wheelchair Program started in 2011. It consists of a team of four – a clinical manager/physiotherapist, an adiminstration co-ordinator and two wheelchair assembly staff. They work closely in partnership with United Cerebral Palsy Wheels For Humanity (UCP WFH, Indonesia) in the provision of appropriate wheelchairs and services for Bali and Eastern Indonesia.
