KnH Quality Time Services are a South Australian family owned private Business managed by Kym and Greg (Herb) Plunkett. Our aim was to establish a Day Options Program for people with a disability from school leavers through to adults. We began to establish the business in 1999. In May 2000 KnH were granted a place on the Provider Panel to Disability SA. This enabled us to enrol people in our new Program which was then based at Cudlee Creek.
Kym has had many years experience as a Registered Nurse in Intellectual Disabilities and also Mental Health. Initially Kym trained at Stockton in NSW as a Registered Nurse in Intellectual Disability before moving to Sydney to further her career in the field of Mental Health. In 1991 we relocated to Adelaide where Kym resumed her career at the then Strathmont Centre in Oakden. It was Kym’s aim to provide excellent day option programs which offered choice and utilised the rural community in close proximity to Adelaide’s Northern Suburbs. Kym is now the General Manager of Services for KnH Quality Time Services.
Greg’s background was in Branch & Project Management in the Electrical & Lighting Industry and at the time KnH Quality Time Services was established was the South Australian State Manager for a Multi- National Manufacturer and Supplier. Greg now works full time as the General Manager of Operations for KnH Quality Time Services.
Over the past eleven years our Program has grown and developed and now operates from two locations, Paracombe and Lobethal. Both programs offer centre based activities and community partnership activities and voluntary work programs including our Forestry SA, KESAB and Gorge Wildlife Park Partnership Programs.
In 2009 KnH Passenger Services was also established as an ancillary business of KnH Quality Time Services. The passenger service operates as a Licensed Operator of a Wheelchair Access Vehicle service in the Mount Barker and Adelaide Hills providing services to the local community and general public.
In January 2011, due to our proximity to the beautiful Adelaide Hills Region (and a love of wine!), KnH Passenger Services was expanded to include Wine Tours and Packages and transport for Group Functions.
Recently our son Michael Plunkett has joined us and has been appointed our Tours and Events Manager at KnH Passenger Services continuing the tradition of excellent service.
