The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the new way of providing reasonable and necessary support for eligible people with permanent and significant disability, their families and their carers.

Ascent is a registered provider for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). This scheme aims to extend funding for disability services, ensuring all people in our community have access to the assistance and specific services they would like to receive.

Supports are being provided across the spectrum of the NDIS, and we are striving to ensure our participants have choice and control over their lives to meet their goals and aspirations.

The Ascent Group specialises in:

  • Assistance with daily life
  • Accessing the community
  • Providing social and recreational support
  • Finding a job and career development
  • Coordination of supports
  • Behaviour management
  • Plan management
  • Carer respite

For more than 60 years, Ascent has been providing ethical and effective care for people in Armidale and the New England region. Ascent’s philosophy has always been founded on person-centred planning principles and flexible delivery of services. We are in a strong position to respond positively to NDIS initiatives and to continue enriching the lives of children and adults living with a disability.

Ascent can help you with:

  • Learning more about the NDIS and how it works
  • Identifying your reasonable and necessary supports
  • Defining your future goals and aspirations
  • Support with understanding the eligibility and documentation for NDIS

If you have an NDIS plan, if you want to find out more about how Ascent can assist you with your NDIS transition, or you’re unsure where to go from here, simply get in touch with our friendly team.

Ascent pricing:

Ascent’s pricing for NDIS funded supports are identical to the prices set out and regulated by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).  Ascent accesses the Temporary Transformation Payment (TTP) for the provision of attendant care and community participant supports.
