Live Every Day Your Way With Trusted Disability Support Services

Songbird is a modern disability services provider offering a range of NDIS supports across Newcastle, Maitland and the Hunter. As 2016 Disability Service of the Year, we believe in safe, sustainable processes that have lasting, life-changing benefits. Our person-centered approach empowers individuals with a disability to lead their best lives by encouraging opportunities for involvement, choice and accomplishment at home and within society. Because when it comes to your situation, it’s your say. That’s the Songbird promise.

Your Journey to Independence

The level of care for each individual should be tailored depending on disability complexity, life stage, underlying health conditions, local facilities, social bonds and so on. While the informal support of family and friends goes a long way, it’s often essential and transformative to receive expert guidance from passionate specialists.

We strongly encourage you to seek qualified support if you are struggling to get through daily life without assistance.

Meet the Songbird Team

To enrich your life as much as possible, it’s important to recognize the availability of disability support services in your local community. Under the NDIS, Australians with permanent or significant disabilities are eligible for publicly funded disability care. That means you can access a range of disability supports, from accessible group housing to engaging day programs! So remember that we are here for you.

Find out more about NDIS

The Local Area Coordinator (LAC) should be your first point of contact on your path to disability support. It is your LAC’s responsibility to promote the inclusion and support of people with disability in the surrounding community. They will help you to understand and undertake the NDIS so that you can start off your plan on the right foot.

Learn More about LAC

Meet with your LAC to work out which support services your NDIS plan should cover. While your LAC cannot approve this plan, they will help you to prepare and monitor it. You’ll receive helpful NDIS advice as they connect you with community resources and share valuable knowledge, such as how to use the myplace portal.

Find your nearest LAC

Now that you’ve identified the disability services that should be included in your NDIS plan, It’s time to determine which registered provider is right for you. We understand that this can be an overwhelming step – Choosing an organization to support your life is a major decision that should be handled with care. Fortunately, your search has lead you to Songbird. Discover our difference here.
