Carbal Support Services building Warwick’s NDIS Capacity
NTSSS Project Officer Julie Allen visited Carbal Support Services in Warwick as it grows its NDIS services.
The Carbal Support Services’ NDIS Department has grown from two staff to a team of five over the past year, and now supports 16 NDIS participants.
The team provides client-focused and culturally appropriate support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples with disability and continues to receive new referrals each week.
Julie is working with Carbul Support Services as part of the NTSSS Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander NDIS Service Providers Strategy.
Carbul Support Services was established to provide clients with choice and control throughout all interactions of planning, implementation, and support. Its NDIS Services include providing assistance and information, assisting with access, providing support work, support coordination, and plan management.
The organisation offers Men’s Group, Women’s Group, Drumming Therapy, Arts and Craft Group and Koala Club, and hope to start a deadly cooking class for health and living skills.
Julie Allen said “The Carbul team are achieving really positive outcomes and this is just the start of their NDIS venture in Warwick.”
