Information for NDIS Organizations, Support Coordinators, Agencies and Referral Partners
As an NDIS agency, plan manager or support coordinator, you know how important it is to match your clients with the best possible treatment services and support. You also know how difficult it can be to align participants’ multifaceted needs with appropriate, streamlined, integrated treatment with consistent points of contact and progress monitoring.
Our key point of difference is that we are an all-in-one NDIS registered allied health centre with NDIS-registered therapeutic support practitioners who work collaboratively to provide optimal treatment tailored to each client’s needs. This not only makes case management more efficient (you’re liaising with one organisation, not three or four), but it helps to ensure that each participant’s treatment is acutely personalised, which promotes optimal progress and outcomes. Whether your client requires NDIS occupational therapy, NDIS speech therapy, an NDIS physiotherapist (with or without hydrotherapy), NDIS psychologist, NDIS dietetics, group therapy or a combination, we invite you to become a referral partner to our community division. We’d love to work with you to enrich lives so that people can go on living.
