ndis

 

The NDIS can provide each person with a disability with an individualized plan that identifies the outcomes they wish to achieve, the disability supports that will be funded by the NDIS and other supports the person requires. Participants have choice and control over the providers they engage to deliver supports in their plan. As an NDIS Registered Provider, NBCS believes everyone has the right to live a fulfilling life that is not defined by disability. We are a locally operated Service Provider who takes great pride in servicing the North Burnett area.

If you have any questions regarding the NDIS and how NBCS can assist you, please call on 4165 4690 today.

emergency relief

 

NBCS delivers emergency relief services to help people in Gayndah, Mundubbera and Eidsvold address immediate basic needs in times of crisis. Emergency relief can act as a safety net for people experiencing financial distress or hardship and who have limited means or resources to help them alleviate their financial crisis.

The type of assistance offered by NBCS may include one-off assistance such as:

  • food, transport or chemist vouchers

  • part-payment of utility account/s

  • clothing

  • budgeting assistance and/or

  • referrals to other services that help to address underlying causes of financial crisis.

 

Emergency relief organisations can be the first point of contact for an individual with complex needs, allowing for referral to more intensive support such as financial counselling or mental health or alcohol and other drugs support. This early intervention with a wraparound approach can lead to better outcomes and future self-sufficiency for individuals and families.

NBCS builds strong networks within the local communities to assist individuals to minimize potential dependence on assistance.
