At OC Connections, we are excited about the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and the opportunities it provides for people with disabilities. Under the scheme, participants will have greater choice and control over what services they have, what activities they can do, and who will provide these for them.

With almost 70 years’ experience in providing disability services, OC Connections is perfectly placed to be your NDIS provider of choice. We have extensive knowledge in the areas of shared living, in-home support, supported employment and learning and skills development. We are registered to provide NDIS services across all metropolitan regions of Melbourne.

For people starting their NDIS journey, our staff can work with you to make the transition to the new scheme as smooth as possible.

We can assist with:

  • Information about the NDIS and how it works
  • Preparing and gathering information for your discussions with National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) representatives
  • Information on service providers and assistance with connecting you to those offering your selected services
  • Information about NDIS services offered by OC Connections.
