As a leading provider of disability services in New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory, we are dedicated to ensuring people with disability can live the life they choose.
We are an independent, not-for-profit organisation. Our proud history stretches back to 1929, when we were founded as The NSW Society for Crippled Children.
Today, we support more than 13,000 children and adults with disability as well as their families and carers.
Our approach to working with people with disability is to promote inclusion within the wider community. Our goal is to support people to live their life the way they choose.
We are also innovative and strive to find new ways to meet our clients’ needs. In 2015 we were named one of BRW’s Most Innovative Companies in Australia.
Under the NDIS, our customers will be funded for the support they need, however Northcott will always look for opportunities to enhance the services we provide. We are committed to innovative ideas and research to ensure we are constantly striving for better and smarter ways to meet the needs, desires and goals of our customers.
