The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the new way of providing individualised support for people with a disability, their families and carers.

Cobaw are here to help you participate in your community and be more independent.  We help you to achieve your goals and take part in all the everyday things you love and live your best life.

Our comprehensive service

Consultations may be at one of our sites in Kyneton and Romsey or in your own home.  You may need a short burst of therapy or for a longer time to achieve your goals.  Some health conditions may need a number of health experts to work together, in which case our multi-disciplinary team work closely with you to help you manage your complex needs.

Cobaw is a registered provider of services and supports to NDIS participants of all ages.
