Inverell Community Clinic

Ability Therapy Specialists begins this Monday providing a fortnightly clinic in Inverell focused on participants of the National Disability Insurance Scheme. We are hosted by Inverell’s own Individual Ability Supports (IAS). We also have participants coming via other organisations like Brighter Access.

If you know of people interested in attending the clinic, the way to connect is via our Contact Page on this website, or via staff at IAS Inverell.

The clinic provides counselling therapies, behaviour support, and some informal group and community social time depending on who is around and whether people have time to share a cuppa. In some cases, individuals decide the clinic is not for them. They may decide to visit us at our Armidale studio.

By providing a regional clinic, IAS Inverell and our therapy service are working to address the sad lack of adequate NDIS funding for travel and therefore the lower rates of access to senior therapist assistance in the New England North West. By hosting this clinic, we are able to drastically reduce travel costs per participant.
