In recognition of the deep history and culture of this Island Lutrawita, Richmond Futures would like to acknowledge and pay our respects to all Tasmanian Aboriginal people and acknowledge our respect for their culture and identity which has been bound up with the Land, Waterways and Sky for generations. We would also like to pay our respects to Elders, past and present for they hold the memories, knowledge, culture and hopes of Aboriginal Tasmania.

Richmond Futures is committed to continuously building an inclusive and safe organisational culture, where people can bring their whole (authentic and true) self. Diverse experiences, ways of knowing, thinking and working styles are valued, encouraged and respected because we recognise that expertise and knowledge comes in various forms. We work in solidarity with one another to create a workplace where everybody can belong, connect and succeed in their role. We do this by courageously sharing our different perspectives, radically listening, being open to reflection and change, and learning from each other.

What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a way for people under the age of 65 who are living with disability to get care and support.

Greater choice and control

Participants with a NDIS plan have choice and control over who provides their supports and how these supports are provided. This means greater flexibility, so that you can find the support that you need to achieve the goals that are important to you under the NDIS.

Government funding is now allocated to you instead of the organisations that provide the services. This means that you can use that funding to find the mix of support services that suit your needs, values and goals. The support you receive is tailored to you.

At Richmond Futures, we will work with you to help you exercise choice over what supports you need and control over how they are provided.
