We provide a full spectrum of support, from the most basic support to complex and high care support. We are here to help you thrive and make the most of your life.

Dietician

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

Sometimes it’s nice to simply have someone to enjoy a cup of tea with, play a game of cards, talk to about the news or go with for a stroll. Our friendly team is on-hand and ready to help.

Positive care

Living independently at home is about more than just your physical wellbeing. It’s also about finding ways to do the things you love. Whether that’s pottery classes, tap dancing or even painting lessons, we will help you to make it happen.

Private assistance

Perhaps you just need assistance with a particular project or task or with general day-to-day errands. No matter what support you require, we will do our very best to tailor a solution that meets your needs.

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 or attend a family celebration, 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.

Just for you

Is there a particular dream you would like to fulfil or a special goal you would like to achieve? Our tailored and flexible services ensure we are able to customise a support package to help make it possible.

When you're ready for the NDIS, we're ready.

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 24/7. 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.

Putting people with disability in charge

Our NDIS television commercials portray people with disability in an entirely new way, highlighting how through the NDIS, they are in control. Featuring a unique take on a job ‘interview’, the commercials show how Australian Unity is ready to help people with disability at any stage of their NDIS journey. Watch them all and explore what the commercials meant to the cast in our behind-the-scenes videos.
