Public Service Mutual

Kudos Services is Australia’s first Public Service Employee Mutual, formed when our team of public service professionals joined together to create a new organisation to deliver National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) and Therapy services in South Australia.

Our structure draft

The owners and drivers of our organisation are the highly skilled therapists and staff who work within it. This enables us to have an unmatched focus on the achievements of all people within our community of care.

As a cooperative community, Kudos Services is focused entirely on the achievements of all people living with a disability.

What is a mutual?

A mutual is a group of people who come together to meet a common economic, social and cultural need.

Mutuals grew rapidly in post-industrial revolution 1830s England. Known as ‘friendly societies’ they were committed to self-help in the welfare of working people.

This was the birth of the international mutual movement.

There are now one billion members of retail, agricultural and social mutuals in 28 countries.
