CCA & NDIS

Community Connections Australia is registered to provide NDIS Supports and Services. Our provider number is 53760138

At CCA we are supporting people and their families to be NDIS ready by:

  • Holding NDIS information sessions for people who receive services, their families and others who are interested
  • Holding “How To” workshops for people so that they are familiar with how the planning meeting will be conducted
  • Working collaboratively with individuals through planning tools so that each person can go to their NDIS planning meeting knowing what they want to have included in their plan
  • Providing the latest NDIS news through emails and our website
  • Advising FACS of the most up-to-date information about the supports we currently provide to each person
  • Being available to answer any questions people may have. If we don’t know the answers then we will ring NDIA and find out
