Helping you get the support you need to live the life you want

If you’re living with disability, or caring for someone living with a disability, we can work with you to find the support you need, delivered in a way that works for you.

We understand that everyone is different. We all have unique goals and challenges.

We’re here for the long-term to serve your individual needs. We work with you to give you choice and control at every stage of your journey, so you can live life and achieve your goals, your way.

Getting the services you need
You’ve probably heard of the NDIS, but how does it work? And what has it got to do with Baptcare?

National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an insurance support scheme of the Australian Government. It funds costs associated with disability, like specialist support and equipment.

Many people with disabilities, their families and carers are eligible to get funding for the support they need to live the lives they want.

What is the NDIS?
