And the award for the most innovative NDIS provider Melbourne goes to…

Melba Support Services

Finding the right NDIS provider Melbourne can be daunting. What do you judge them by?

At the Melbourne Disability Expo, you can meet and talk with many NDIS providers about their disability support services. This article explores some of the key supports and a range of innovative services that help a person supported to live a fabulous life, and where you can access them.

This should make your search for the right NDIS provider a little easier.

What innovative services does an NDIS provider Melbourne offer?

To live a fabulous life, a supported person needs a good balance of supports and services, tailored towards their specific needs. These range from core supports all the way through to cleaning and gardening.

Along with these, there’s an element of innovative services that need to be weaved into the mix. What do we mean by that? Here’s an example. The supported person may have a creative side. Does the organisation offer their own creative programs? Another example is the desire of a supported person to self-advocate. What does the organisation do to facilitate that?

Innovative services pay a unique role in boosting a supported persons’ self confidence and increasing their independent living skills.

For an innovative NDIS provider Melbourne, you’re in the right place.
