About Us

About Changing Tracks

Changing Tracks Disability Support Service extends a warm welcome to you and to your network of family, friends and carers.

Changing Tracks came about because we were keen to try something new. We wanted to combine our interests and experience to develop a service with a difference. We are passionate about enabling all people to access and enjoy their local community and to explore new horizons. Hence the name ‘Changing Tracks’.

We feel that the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has opened up a range of new and exciting opportunities for people. Tailored support services can now meet the preferences and needs of every individual.

Changing Tracks provides group based support services to people with disabilities aged 15 years and over. Groups include up to four people supported by one staff member.

All services provided by Changing Tracks take place in the community.

Changing Tracks is registered with the NDIS and has met all Department of Human Services Standards and Quality Management System Requirements (ISO 9001: 2015).
