Providing disability support to the Illawarra region since 2001

Northcott has been a part of the Illawarra community since 2001. Our newest office in Wollongong opened its doors in 2017 and has already built a reputation for providing high quality support services for people with disability through a dedicated team of over 50 qualified staff.

 

During the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Wollongong team is offering group sessions via video for Vocational Skills and School Leaver Employment Supports (SLES) customers. We’re also preparing home activities for customers, so contact us to find out more.

Mark Borg

Area Manager

It is awesome to lead and be part of a team that is consistently looking at ways to improve diversity and inclusion for our customers all across the Illawarra region.

Kaila Bennett

Support Coordinator

I love the special connection that you develop with regular customers. It’s really nice to build rapport and see people get out of their comfort zone.

“Chloe is much happier and we’re having less meltdowns. She has heaps more confidence, and a belief that she can do things now.”

Amy, mum of customer Chloe, who received In-Home and Community Supports.
