Short Term Accommodation (Respite)

If you or your family need a break and want to try something new, please contact us today to find out more about our Respite Services.

Support Workers

We know that living in the NT is unlike anything else, and we love it! We also know that living remotely, and being a person with a disability or mental illness can be extremely isolating. We develop a program with you to support you to access the community- be it activities, the shops, community groups or more. We believe firmly in inclusion, and that no one should suffer social isolation.

EqualiTEA  - Training Employment and Activities

We have a partnership with GTNT a registered training organisation to provide accredited and non accredited training programs

We offer self paced supported learning in Katherine, Alice Springs and surrounding Communities

AccessAbility - Group Activities

Want to socialise and get to know other people? If so then AccessAbility is for you. AccessAbility staff will work with you on your NDIA identified goal’s within a group setting. We will be meeting in Katherine during the week and then again on a Saturday morning.

Do you live in one of the communities or smaller towns outside of Katherine and Alice Springs? Not a problem we can organise transport or accommodation (in Katherine)if required
