The New South Wales Government regularly puts the provision of community support services out to tender. But it’s rare that one provider has the specialisms they need in-house to cater for all the needs of some of Australia’s most vulnerable people. That’s why many government bids are won by a consortium of service providers.
Further Together is one such consortium. A new not-for-profit venture created to bid on the provision of disability services in NSW, it’s a joint project whose founding members are Aftercare, LiveBetter, Cram Foundation, New Horizon, Samaritans Foundation and The Disability Trust. They’re united in a desire to ensure disabled people and their carers maintain control, and choice, as NSW transitions to the NDIS.
