Meet Lucy.

Lucy has recently joined HenderCare as the Service Delivery Manager in SA. We sat down with her to learn about her role, how she got into the industry and her favourite thing to do on the weekend.

Here at HenderCare we understand COVID-19 has changed the way many of us go about our daily lives. For so many NDIS participants, particularly those living in areas with active COVID-19 cases, it has become increasingly important Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is easily accessible to ensure protection for both participants and workers.

The NDIA have recently put in place temporary measures to protect both participants and workers and ensure participants have continued access to PPE without it impacting on their budgets.

Following the completion of the Annual Price Review to determine NDIS pricing arrangements for the 2020-21 financial year, the NDIA has published the NDIS Price Guide and Support Catalogue 2020-21. 

At HenderCare we would like to remind people we have a zero tolerance policy towards abuse, neglect and violence of those in the disability sector.
