What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a national system of disability support. It focuses on supporting the needs and choices of those living with disability. The NDIS supports people to live life their own way and also to help them achieve their goals and integrate into social and economic life. 

The NDIS enables people to make decisions about their supports – including who provides them.

We provide initial comprehensive assessment care plan development, personalised clinical services and also deliver a wide range of disability services in both QLD and NSW.

If you are eligible for NDIS support we’d love to talk with you about how we can work together to provide the services and outcomes you need.
