Omega Support Group originated in 2005 when Lee Zammit had been working in the Disability industry since 2000 where he was employed by various disability organisations across Tasmania. Lee decided to relocate to Melbourne in 2005, continuing to work in the disability industry. Whilst working for the larger organisations, Lee identified the need for a more personalised approach which appeared to be lacking within the industry. Lee felt there were families and service providers left uninformed and constant staffing issues pervading clients’ lives. Lee’s vision was to manage a small support service that primarily focussed on providing quality staff not quantity of staff, ensuring compatibility of staff to individual needs was met at all times, the recruitment of staff focused on suitable trained and experienced staff and consistency of staff was vital for ongoing clients requiring support. Omega Support Group was designed to address the needs of people – not the needs of a business;
In 2005 Lee became the sole proprietor of Zammit Support Services where Lee initially supported a handful of individual cases himself, and then in 2008 the business expanded into a company trading as Omega Support Group. Lee employed experienced staff who were committed and enthused to work towards Lee’s vision of providing a quality service. In 2012 Lee employed Fiona Loschiavo as the General Manager. Fiona brought over 20 years’ experience managing and working in the disability industry. Together with Lee and Fiona having over 30+ years of combined experience and committed staff Omega Support Group’s name quickly was recognised as a provider who is provides a quality service focusing on matching staff to individual’s ensuring their needs are met and not allocating staff to just have a shift filled as we do believe this is unfair for the client, staff, service providers, families and carers as it sets people up to fail.
