The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) reform is the most significant structural reform in Australia since the introduction of Medicare some 40 years ago and is a great step forward for the rights and dignity of individuals with a disability.
The NDIS puts each participant at the centre of the decision making process on how and where they would like to live their life. Funding is provided by the NDIS directly to the participant and they choose, with the support of their carers and family, the service providers they would like to support them to achieve their goals.
Third Sector Australia (3SA), a NDIS registered provider, is well advanced with the transformation of our business model to rebuild and reorient to meet the changing demands of the NDIS environment. We have established robust back office processes to ensure that our clients’ service delivery and invoicing records are managed effectively and in accordance with NDIA guidelines.
We are continually expanding our service provider networks and have partnered with an independent support coordination service, SUPKO, to ensure we take an holistic approach to meeting our client’s individual goals. We offer a number of specialist services in the following regions:
- Tweed Heads, NSW
- Lismore/Ballina, NSW
- Casino, NSW
- Grafton/Coffs Harbour, NSW
- Hervey Bay, Qld
NAVIGATING THE NDIS
3SA’s portfolio of services have been designed around three pillars essential to achieving independence and wellbeing – providing a home, a job and life skills that give each client the chance to live a more independent happier life.
