STEPS Help to Get the Most out of the NDIS

 In Community Support, Disability, Mental Health, Social & Community, STEPS

With the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) rolling out on the Sunshine Coast last January  STEPS Community Services have been working hard to help clients transition to the new scheme.

As part of this new government funding system, those living with disability in Australia can have greater choice and more control.

STEPS Deputy CEO Kerry Staines said while the scheme is a very positive step forward for the one in five Australians who live with a disability, it can also be a confusing system to navigate.

“The NDIS is a revolutionary new scheme for individuals with a disability, their families and carers,” Ms Staines said.

“STEPS are helping people to navigate through the web of information and are working closely with our customers and families, showing them the tools and supports available to help them confidently achieve a life of greater independence based around individual need and choices.”

For clients who need assistance with NDIS Plan Management and Coordination Support, STEPS is there to assist.

STEPS is an industry leader with over 30 years’ experience working in the sector. They can help select the appropriate services for individuals to achieve their specific goals.

STEPS NDIS Support Coordinators have localised, specialised knowledge on what support services are available to help clients find the best services to suit their needs, and at the right price.

The organisation can even manage an individual’s plan, taking out the hard work, so they can get back to living life and focusing on what’s important to them.

STEPS also support Australians living with mental illness on their journey towards recovery. STEPS’ services are designed to provide greater well-being, enjoyment, and independence in life.

  • Assistance with day-to-day activities
