Capacity Building NDIS

Capacity Building NDIS

Being able to live independently and do things for yourself is largely reliant on having particular skills under your belt. That’s why the NDIS offers funding to help people with a disability develop certain life skills, like cooking, cleaning and finding a job. Capacity Building NDIS is about learning how to seize the day on your own, and Care Assure is here to help make it happen.
