What aspects of this service worked well for you?
“Great flexibility in meeting locations. The Recovery workers provided amazing non-judgemental and caring support and were a great fit personality wise. I also appreciated that one of the Recovery Workers always asked for consent before she did anything. Not many people do this.”
“Having someone to check on me made a big difference. Also support to access NDIS”
