One Community’s founders, Kellie Puxty and Shelley Youman, were working together in the NDIS space when they quickly realised there was a gap in the system: Participants and NDIS service providers needed a more effective and efficient way to connect with each other.
One Community was born to address this gap through our Ready-Set-Connect networking events held across Australia, our Boosted app and our online services Hub. We now have more than 200 events under our belt and have facilitated thousands of provider/Participant connections.
Helping people live their best lives is what drives us. We seek to support both NDIS Participants and the disability service sector, and we believe this is best achieved through creating connections and shared learning.
While the NDIS service sector is doing some excellent work having a tangible and significant impact on people’s lives, there is always room for improvement.
With this in mind, we are staging the inaugural Australian Disability Service Conference and Awards (ADSCA). The idea for the Awards and the Conference came from discussions with our One Community members about their achievements and shared challenges.
This will be the first event of its kind for those working in the sector, and we hope will help strengthen, advance and celebrate the NDIS service industry.
