Disability Services and the NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an Australian Government initiative to provide a person centred support system that gives people with disability choice and control over the services and supports they need. The NDIS focuses on removing many barriers that are faced by people living with disability and their families and carers. CRCS is a registered NDIS service provider, and works to support positive inclusion for all people in our community. CRCS is committed to providing the highest quality of service and flexibility to meet individual needs.
