At together², we see and celebrate your individuality and needs so you can feel safe, supported and able to succeed. Our approach is simple: We create a package of support options that fit you, your lifestyle and the goals you want to achieve.
By working to understand your strengths and unique abilities, we can tailor a solution that will provide the support you need while giving you the autonomy you want.
What kind of service can you expect?
We take your natural strengths and abilities and then build on them! As we provide support, you’ll have greater autonomy in resolving problems and the room to grow and express your personality.
Your voice, and that of your family and friends, matters and will be included in all decision-making processes. We will constantly monitor all relationships to make sure that there are positive developments only as we work with you.
You are an integral part of the community and it’s our mission to make it accessible to you. We create local connections for you to develop a sense of belonging while empowering you to take part in community life.
What happens then?
Tell us what you need and we’ll match you with the right support provider to work with you in implementing your support package. We know that stability matters to you and, more importantly, so does working with the right person and personality! When connecting clients and support workers we invest time and energy in finding the right fit for both of you.
What we offer:
Together-Time. Travel-Time. Me-Time.
You tell us what activities are important to you and that’s what we’ll do. From movies, crafting or gym classes, to taking a holiday and escaping the daily grind, we design programs around your interests and needs – whatever they may be.
Alternative Day Programs
Our alternative Day Programs are focused on capacity building supports, we don’t have centres that are separate from the rest of the community, our centres are inclusive welcoming places that encourage the building of communities and friendship.
What is life without a break?! Take the time-out you deserve while accessing the support you need to do it safely and independently. Our own short-term accommodation options designed just for this reason: On your own, with a friend or in a group – tell us what suits you best and we’ll make it happen.
Whether you need support or company in the evenings or help over the weekend to enable you to get some shopping done, catch up with friends or attend an event, we are here for you 24/7.
Want to see a show or hit the gym? We work with local businesses, including gym’s and local theatre companies, to ensure that you have full access to all the activities that matter to you in your local community.
Hello home. Hello housemate. Hello independence.
It’s not a house it’s your home – so where and how you live should suit you. Whatever your disability, we’ll help you find an accommodation solution that empowers your independence and fits your personality.
Supported Independent Living (SIL)
Because group homes don’t suit everyone! Supported Independent Living is about you as an individual and what works for you. We provide a range of SIL options including single and double units. There will be no staff offices in your home, just clusters of SIL housing with shared supports to maximise your independence and privacy.
Individualised Living Options (ILO)
If you are looking for a more personalised independent living option, we can help you explore and design the home and supports that you want. Maybe you need help with managing your own staff or you want us to handle everything, from finding accomodation to managing your staff, for you. You choose how you want to be supported and we’ll make it happen.
Make decisions. Make a plan. Make it happen.
Feeling overwhelmed by the complexity of the NDIS system? We get it, and we’re here to make things simpler for you. We know the system, so we can help you understand your plan – then you can make the right decisions about your own support.

Specialist Support Coordination
Need an extra level of support? From occupational therapy, psychology or social workers, our specialist support coordination helps reduce any barriers to implementing or using your NDIS plan. And yes, it includes full management of your plan as well!
We will help you to achieve clear goals for the duration of your first plan along with support from our qualified social workers to navigate the complexities of health and community justice services as needed. Our aim is to decrease the need for this high-intensity support to continue – if you no longer need this, that means we have done our job!
Daily support. Weekly support. ‘Sometimes’ support.
Our dedicated support worker will work with you one-on-one to develop the skills you need to live independently in your own home and become an active community member through involvement in leisure, recreation, sport, education and employment.
Working in partnership with you and the people in your life who know you best, you’ll be empowered to realise your potential and live life your way.
Ageing Disability Service
Ageing with a disability sometimes requires extra care and attention to maintain your quality of life. Our team is experienced in both aged and disability care and will support you with accessing the care services you need while keeping your independence.
Residential Placements for Children and Occasional Respite
together² is an approved voluntary out-of-home (VOOHC) care provider registered by the Office of the Children’s Guardian to provide centre-based out-of-home care. This means that if support is needed for children and young people with disability when outside the family home, we can help.
We provide respite when, as a family member or carer, you need assistance for things like:
- Overnight support
- Transport; eg. collecting the child from school
- Community activities such as sport
- After school care/during school holidays
