The NDIS, Amaranth Foundation & Therapeutic Supports

The NDIS provides therapeutic support funding to eligible people based on their individual needs. The therapeutic supports are given by a range of clinicians that cover your different needs, including your mental, physical and social wellbeing. The supports you may receive are designed to help you improve your functional skills and independence.
