Our door is always open and we welcome enquiries about how our programs can be of help. You can self-refer or be referred by a family member, a friend, by another community service or a health practitioner. NDIS is the new national entry point into the disability system. Our staff can explain and assist you to navigate these new systems if you need support or information.
Our services are client-focused and aim to support you to achieve your personal goals, remain living independently and involved in your community.
