Bringing high-quality services to the Northern Rivers

Our Northern Rivers team comes from humble beginnings, starting out with seven employees offering day services for people with disability. Today, this dedicated team of 42 provides a range of disability services, including high-quality therapy services.

New accommodation is coming to the Northern Rivers! In 2020, Ballina will have two new homes to accommodate people with SDA (Specialist Disability Accommodation) funding. This video shows the proposed accommodation housing model by Casa Capace in Ballina. The purpose built homes will offer a new experience for people with disability and will be very modern in style. If you want to know more about these and other accommodation opportunities, please contact our specialists’ team on 1800 818 286 or email them

At Northcott Ballina, we are committed to unlocking potential. Our team is focussed on supporting you and those in your care with a wide range of disability services. We want you and your family to feel in control, included and supported in the local Ballina community, and beyond.

NDIS planning and support
When it comes to making the most of your NDIS funding, we can assist you with Coordination of Supports, NDIS planning, and provide the highest standard of support services from therapies to assistive technology.

Combining experience and commitment
Our Ballina team of allied health professionals, carers and support workers have extensive experience across a range of disability services to support and manage complex disability. Our locally-based trusted therapists work as part of a multidisciplinary team across all therapy disciplines to provide holistic support. When you access our Ballina Speech Therapy, Ballina Occupational Therapy or Ballina Physiotherapy from the Northcott Ballina centre, our team will assess your goals and work with you to achieve them.

Diverse range of services
We focus on building independence and social inclusion. We enable greater choice and opportunity for you through our Everyday Life Skills and In-home and Community Supports services. For adults wanting to gain independence or live away from home, we not only offer Housing and Supported Independent Living services, but can also support you to increase your confidence and job skills to assist you to find a job with Vocational Skills Training and School Leaver Employment Support (SLES).

We support various forms of disability including neurological, congenital and genetic conditions such as Cerebral Palsy, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, Spina Bifida and Rett Syndrome.

We also support people with intellectual disability such as Down Syndrome, Global Developmental Delay, Fine Motor Delay, Developmental Coordination Disorder and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
