Established in 2018, Next Step Disability Services Pty Ltd (NSDS) provides a range of support services for adults with disability in Ballarat, Bendigo and surrounding areas.  Originally established to provide a community hub, community access, personal skill development programs and personalised care for people living in Ballarat, NSDS has grown to support over 100 clients in regional Victoria.  The rapid growth of our organisation in its first 12 months, is reflective of our focus on delivering high quality, person centred support. 


More recently, we have expanded our services to ‘round the clock’ support for persons choosing to live in their own home. We are enthusiastic about the future possibilities for people to live as independently as possible in a supported independent living arrangement, and to position ourselves to meet this demand; and believe our wealth of prior experience in supported residential service accommodation has us well placed to make this a reality.   

We are equally excited by our newly established Youth Headquarters (YHQ) which supports 18-25 years olds to have fun and learn new skills.
