1992

P.A.S.T. was established in 1992, supporting only 14 young people with Intellectual disabilities, living on the Peninsula and surrounding areas.  In 1995, an application was successful and DHS funded P.A.S.T. $250,000 for the purchase of a house in Langwarrin. The group moved in by September of that year.

2004

By 2004, the Organisation had transitioned from being a ‘service provider’ to ‘providing support’.  P.A.S.T. began providing in-home support to people with progressive neurological disorders.  The Cranbourne site opened around this time and our Respite Services commenced operations.

1997

By 1997, after the introduction of the Futures for Young Adults program and securing the ability to deliver services under the Carers program, the numbers grew from 14 to 35.  Staff numbers increased and transport runs expanded.  Additional vehicles were purchased.  An overnight stay program was developed and other organizations began using the property for respite and holiday programs.

2008

In 2008, focus was on ensuring the Organisation was progressing to comply with the requirements of the Quality Framework.  Work continues to be undertaken in reviewing policies and processes ensuring adherence ongoing.

1997

Links with local community centres were established to provide programs for individuals and people with disabilities generally.  Around the same time, P.A.S.T became a registered provider with Adult Community Further Education (ACFE) and established Adult Education courses for people with disabilities.

2012

After twenty years the Organisation has grown to now supporting approximately 160 individuals.  Additionally, the Organisation has diversified from supporting people with an Intellectual disability to now being non-specific.  PAST supports people with a myriad of disabilities including but not limited to intellectual, physical, neurological, sensory and psychiatric disability.

1998

Service User numbers grew to 49 in 1998, and the Mornington and Cranbourne sites were established.  ACFE courses were running in Carrum Downs, Langwarrin, Cranbourne and Merinda Park Community Centres.

2014

In November 2014, P.A.S.T. rebranded and is now known as MiLife - Victoria.  While all of our services remain the same, we are preparing to ensure we are flexible with the changes that the NDIS will bring to people with disabilities.  Today sees us supporting over 360 individuals and their families across the organisation. We will continue to provide services to people with a range of disabilities and are proud of the difference that we continue to make in their lives.

2000

In 2000, P.A.S.T. developed its first Business Plan, modeling it on the Governments own State Plan.  The Transport service was accredited by the Department of Infrastructure.  The Hastings property was purchased in 2002 and a new ATSS building at the Langwarrin site opened.
