St Agnes' Care and Lifestyle - Donnelly House

National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a Federal Government program to support people with a disability. It means greater choice and more control for people to achieve their goals.

St Agnes’ Care & Lifestyle is registered to provide services to NDIS participants under the name of Catholic Parish of St Agnes Port Macquarie. Registration Number: 4050059727.

We offer person-centred, tailored support to NDIS participants in the following ways

Plan management
Plan Managers ensure all NDIS supports a participant uses are paid for in a timely manner, and within budget. They support information to the participant on remaining funds and services paid.

Support Coordination
Support Coordinators assist people to understand their NDIS plan, connect and coordinate their supports, and develop capacity and resilience to manage their plan into the future. A Support Coordinator can assist with the implementation of supports in the plan, coordinate assessments, reports and service proposals, support the participant through identifying and selecting providers, monitoring plan and outcomes and plan expenditure.

We have offices in Port Macquarie and Kempsey providing outreach to Port Macquarie, Kempsey, Wauchope, Laurieton, Taree, Nambucca Heads and Macksville.
