Who we are

About us

Here at the Support Agency, we believe that each individual is the expert in their own life – our skills and experience are to support each individual in reaching their goals. We understand that the NDIS can be a bit of a minefield, but we have the expertise to help people navigate the system.


We’re passionate about capacity building; we want to guide you and teach you the skills to navigate the system independently. We have the knowledge and patience to teach you if you want to learn.


If you don’t feel ready, we’ll continue to support you and provide assistance where required.
