Discovering you.

Youth is a challenging time for everyone. You are changing in body and mind and you are doing it while living with a disability. We can support you as you navigate new milestones, friendships, boundaries and feelings. You can use the funds in your NDIS or Department of Human Services Individualised Support Plan for the support you need at home, school, in the community, or when you or your family need a break. We are here for you as you go through challenges other young people cannot understand.
