St Michaels is proud to be a registered service provider for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
The NDIS is an insurance scheme funded by both the federal and state governments to ensure that people with a disability receive support to be part of the social and economic life of our community.
The NDIS is there to support you in achieving your goals. The scheme represents a significant social change, giving you greater choice and control over the things that affect your life.
St Michaels provides NDIS services, advice and support to people with intellectual and/or physical disabilities and your family members.
We can assist you to navigate the NDIS system. We will answer your questions and advise you on the best plan to meet your needs and goals.
