Umbrella Connections

NDIS Support Services in Geelong

We are a new NDIS service provider in the Geelong area and we are looking forward to being your connection to your community and helping you enjoy a better daily experience in life.

At Umbrella Connections our staff have had over twenty years of living within the mental health community sector. We believe that by developing understanding in knowing that everyone has strengths and weaknesses and by focusing on capacity, each of us can have a fulfilling life.

Our mission is to provide a strengthening base for those affected by mental health issues so they can reach their potential; developing insight, resilience and control.

In the short-term, we are only providing support to NDIA plans which have Plan or Self-managed Coordination. We can assist you with the process of moving to Plan managed if you would like.
