International Day of People with Disability is an important date in the HenderCare calendar. It's an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of people with a disability, and focus on breaking down accessibility barriers.
Libby Burns, our National Disability & Allied Health Services Manager, said that it was a great chance to get out into the community to meet participants and their families, as well as other service providers. "The NDIS has completely flipped the traditional model of care for people with a disability. Now, plans are goal-driven, and the participants are truly in the driver's seat."
"Getting out and about in our community at events like this is just one of the ways we show how committed we are to supporting participants," she said.
HenderCare is proud to have been a Registered NDIS Provider since 2013. As the rollout of the NDIS has increased, so too has demand for our services. With a long history as a disability services provider, we're committed to working with each participant as they transition onto the scheme.
If you, or someone you care for, is transitioning onto the NDIS, or you are already receiving services but would like to chat to a new provider, you can call our Disability Services team on 1300 764 433. You can also send them a message via this website.
