Ensuring people living with a disability are empowered and supported to live their best life is at the heart of the Purple House model of care.
The NDIS team provides high-quality services which are client centred and prioritise cultural safety. The services we offer respond to the needs and directions of the individual client and are designed to assist people to live a good quality of life whether they are in town or out bush on Country.
We work with clients and their families/carers and support networks to develop clear goals designed to support their health and well-being.
