We are here for the whole community. There are many different ways that you can access our services.
Free and low cost services
Your personal circumstances should not impact your ability to get quality health care. That’s why many of our services are subsidised for people with greater health, economic and social needs.
Fees are assessed based on your income and circumstances. If you face difficulties paying for services, please contact us.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing support for Australians with a disability.
If you have an NDIS Plan, you can access the following services with us through your plan:
- Occupational therapy (for adults)
You or your Support Coordinator can contact us to make a referral.
All our other services remain available to you, and fees will be assessed based on your income and circumstances.
To find out if you are eligible for an NDIS Plan contact the National Disability Insurance Agency on:
