National Disability Insurance Scheme
Hands and Feet Inc are a registered NDIS Service Provider.
It has allowed us to connect further with family members of children and families we work with, and also establish new connections and networks.
So what does this work look like?
As a Christian-based organisation with a strong Christian Ethos and motivation for serving people in our community we aim to be professional, caring, trustworthy and flexible in the services we deliver. The NDIS programme in Australia promotes participant’s ability to make their own choices. Knowing we are a Christian organisation, they can choose whether they make use of our services or not.
We are registered with the NDIS to help with Community Access, Yard Maintenance, Meal Provision and Household Assistance for those with approved NDIS plans. It is a privilege and humbling experience to sit with those who are lonely and talk with them, cry with them, clean with them and listen to their life stories. It has also been special to include our children in this – the therapy of children is so powerful! The children take turns at helping with gardening and cleaning when it is appropriate and the participants are happy for them to attend, especially if they can be serenaded by a few songs on the guitar or ukulele!
If you are a Participant with the NDIS and are interested in Hands and Feet – Ephraim House working out a unique Service Agreement together to meet your needs please get in contact with us, we would love to be able to see if and how we can help you! Feel free to call Erin on 0413115558 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
