MISSION AUSTRALIA

Mission Australia is the Partners in the Community delivering Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) and Local Area Coordination (LAC) services in Cairns and surrounding regions. The ECEI services provides support to children aged 0 to 6 years who have a developmental delay or disability and their families or carers.

They support families to help children develop the skills they need to take part in daily activities and achieve the best possible outcomes throughout their life. The LAC service is for people 7 to 64 years with a disability and their families, and they will help you to understand and access the NDIS and link you to information and support in the community.

CENTACARE FNQ

Counsellors can provide support to individuals, couples, children and families experiencing issues, whether it be with relationships, parenting, trauma, stress, loss or general wellbeing.

The counsellor will facilitate discussions so individuals and families can work through and find their own way to address issues they are experiencing. This can involve looking into the past to help understand the way we do things today that may or may not be helpful or healthy.

Centacare believes you are the experts in your own lives and our counsellors are here to help you navigate emotions towards positive outcomes.

PEAK PLAN MANAGEMENT

Peak is a dedicated plan management team of chartered accountants and bookkeepers. They offer a no-fuss provider payment service for North Queensland families. Local Client Liaison Officer, Jodie appreciates that navigation of the NDIS portal (claiming and payments to providers, budget monitoring and the audit process) is more than what some families can manage. We handle this so families can focus on getting the right supports in place.

Their straight-forward approach includes personal ‘face to face’ meetings, fast payment of all providers, a free ‘real time’ app that shows provider payments and daily budget tracking, no out-of-pocket expense for the participant, direct communication with providers and friendly, ‘happy to help’ customer service.

INDEPENDENT SUPPORT SOLUTIONS

Independent Support Solutions work with participants who have a documented disability or a psychosocial disability to guide you through the NDIS process. They work with participants whose diagnosis of their disability or mental illness is severe in degree and persistent in duration, have a complexity of needs, are under 65 years of age and requires linking to support and services.

Everything is a process, and in that process is progress with assistance and support of a good support coordinator who will talk you through it all.

You or your family member will be relieved of all the burden that goes with the never-ending paperwork.
