Workpower, the NDIS, and you

It’s our job to make sure you’re receiving the best support possible. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is now available to all eligible recipients in Western Australia. If you are caring for a person with a disability, we can help you complete the process required to determine your eligibility for the NDIS.

As a registered NDIS and Disability Services Commission (DSC) provider, Workpower provides a wide range of options. We also offer an impartial support coordination service. Our aim is to enable you to live a good life, fully realise your potential, and to participate and contribute to society. We can assist you with:

  • Strengthening your abilities to coordinate your supports
  • Coordinating your supports from a range of sources
  • Resolving crises as they arise

Have questions about the NDIS? Check out our Resources.

The annual grand performance

Every year our Performing Arts programs come together for an annual show-stopping performance. Take a look at these videos from our 2017 All Aboard! performance…

To us, every individual is important. When you join us you’re assigned a personal Case Manager, who assists in accessing funding and creating a support plan for your specific needs.

Our goal is to help you achieve your goals and get the most out of your support.
