Disability Services

A world of advice and integrated services to support you in getting the most out of every day 

If you are living with a disability, Australian Unity can assist you to achieve your goals and do more of the things you enjoy. Whether that’s through working with you to develop new skills, re-join the workforce, master everyday tasks or access community connections and key services, the choice is yours.

We’re an experienced provider, with many team members who have been delivering disability services for years through the Home Care Service of NSW, which joined with Australian Unity in 2016. As a mutual company, we’re owned by members rather than shareholders, which means we reinvest our profits into services that directly support our members and customers. 

National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

The NDIS is the main way people with disability are funded to pay for the support they need. Australian Unity is an approved NDIS provider.

Dietician

Our team of dieticians can provide you with telephone support to help make changes to your lifestyle to achieve your health goals.

Companionship

Sometimes it’s nice to simply have someone to enjoy a cup of tea with, play a game of cards, or browse the local shops. Our friendly team is on-hand and ready to help.

Community participation

We can support you to get out and about to further your goals, interests, work or social activities. We can assist you with arranging transport, accompanying you and providing support whilst out.

Transport

Getting out and about is an important part of independent living. If you need to see a doctor, would like to catch a movie or even just visit a loved one, we can arrange the safe and comfortable transport you require.

Travel

From departure and arrival assistance to accompanying you on your adventure, we are here to make sure your holiday is everything you dreamed it would be.

Understanding the NDIS

The NDIS is here. That means more control in your life, more freedom to decide on the services and support you would like and more flexibility to set your own plan, with no-one telling you what you can and can’t do.

If you’d like a little support to understand what the NDIS can do for you, our friendly team is available to discuss your needs. As one of Australia’s most experienced disability service providers we’re ready to support you on your terms.

NDIS Planning tool

NDIS Planning Tool

Knowing your support needs and goals are important first steps in preparing for your NDIS plan. Our NDIS Planning Tool is designed to make it easier for you to outline the things that are essential to your daily life and ensure that your NDIS plan helps you to achieve your future goals.

You may like to use the tool on your own, with a family member, a friend or with an Australian Unity team member. Get in contact with one of our team members to organise a one-on-one chat.
