At Independence World, we actively advocate on behalf of individuals with a disability that need more care. If a person has to constantly ask their friends, family or volunteers to assist them, it can break down relationships and those that are untrained can injure themselves, ultimately costing the tax payer more. A person may only need a only a few hours extra to stay healthy and happy, we help them get it. If they need 24 hour care, we have also helped people get that. Ask us for advice regarding the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
