Our NDIS team has recently connected with a remote community in the NT - about 5 hours drive from the nearest city - and provided information on the scheme and CASPA Support Coordination services.

Community member Tessa* moved to CASPA for her Support Coordination, and since then all of ...her NDIS supports have increased resulting in her quality of life improving tremendously.

She is now able to access medical appointments, hydrotherapy, shopping, hair appointments, outings and through this her physical and mental wellbeing has improved significantly.

We are so proud of Tessa* and her achievements and look forward to seeing her thrive.

CASPA Services received a generous donation from the Inner Wheel Clubs in Scone, Tuggerah, Gosford, Wagga, Wodonga, Narre Warren (Melbourne), Mercy and Burnie in Tasmania.

The donation was from women who wanted to distribute it to organisations that are catering to the needs of many ...following the floods, and in particular supporting women and children.💙

It will go along way to facilitate the ongoing support the Tuckshop has been providing to the community and to foster carers regardless of their Agency by providing free coffee and morning tea every Wednesday.
