NDIS Support Services

We are Central Victoria’s leading disability service provider

We want to help families get to grips with the NDIS. That means we all have to understand a lot of new information and get on board with new procedures so you can get on with living the good life.

To help you achieve that understanding and build your capacity to use that information to your own benefit, here are some concise information tables that describes very specifically, the range of NDIS services that Amicus is registered to deliver, and how those NDIS services compare or, “translate” in to what Amicus already provides.

In this way you should be able to identify and ask for exactly what you want when planning with the NDIA, or Local Area Coordinators.
