We work with families to design a personalised plan that identifies the supports that your child needs now and helps you plan for the future.

Whether you are interested in helping your child to learn everyday living skills, improve their communication, overcome behavioural challenges or to make friends and build connections in the community, we can work with you to determine the supports you need and assist you to put them in place.

We currently provide many different services and programs for children with disabilities including after-school, Saturday and School holiday programs in addition to a range of camps and getaways throughout the year.

All of our programs are available as part of your NDIS package. Speak to the NDIS team for more information about how to incorporate into your package.
