It’s not every day that two of the most senior politicians in the country stop in for a visit, let alone a day before a federal election.

Today however was that day for customers and staff at Northcott’s office in Parramatta. 

Opposition Leader Bill Shorten, his wife Chloe, Deputy Opposition Leader Tanya Plibersek and Federal Member for Parramatta Julie Owens visited Northcott to celebrate the start of the full rollout of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

Northcott customers and staff also celebrated this momentous day at local offices in Taree, Campbelltown and Tamworth.

Enjoy the photos and videos that show we’re all #ndisready!
