Julie Larsen – Support Coordinator

I have a lifelong experience with living and dealing with disabilities. Family and friends, and also work.

I care what you want and will help make that goal a reality. We all deserve the dignity and tools to help grow into the world of how we want to live our lives.  I am here to help you do that

We might want similar things in life, that doesn’t mean we all take the same journey to get there. I will listen and ask you about your NDIS goals, to get what suits your individual needs.

I have had so many people say they never had someone take the time to really listen to how they want to achieve there goals. They have been read off the plan and pointed in a direction, but not necessarily listened to on what, or how they want to go about reaching those goals

I will listen to you.  We are all different, and everyone deserves the time to be listened to and work on your way you want to reach your journey

I have been appointed to proudly lead the new beginning of Support Coordination and would love to know how I can help to simplify your life.

Call 0456 674 636 or email me directly julie@rsaust.com.au.
