Sunshine Butterflies services were created to assist families find their way through the confusing maze of disability services available, referring them to the appropriate service or program while also connecting them with other families and support groups. The NDIS is now operating in our region. This enables families and individuals to have choice and control over their disability supports, including the ability to choose who and how these supports are provided and managed.
With our growing reputation within the community sector, Sunshine Butterflies Inc. is now known as an organisation that goes far beyond just assisting those living with a disability or a mental illness.
Those who use our service are families, individuals, carers, service providers, NGO’s, medical personnel, schools and community groups - all for different reasons.
