NDIS brings additional supports to Matthew

With the NDIS well and truly now rolling out across the Redlands, Logan, Brisbane and Gold Coast regions, it’s wonderful to see participants and their families receiving additional funding for much needed extra supports.

Helen and her son Matthew from the Gold Coast, have been with Myhorizon for over five years now. Matthew participates in the activities run by the Lifestyle team at our Ashmore Centre, and loves going out with the other participants and the Myhorizon team, whether it be to the local Tenpin Bowling Centre, or fishing on the Broadwater.

Matthew has cerebral palsy and is non-verbal but communicates with his eyes and hands. He is like most 23 year olds with a great love of watching sports and going out to meet people.

With Matthew’s extra funding in his NDIS package, Matthew’s mum Helen, can now extend the hours of support that Matthew receives.

“We are really happy with Matthew’s NDIS package because we were running out of funds previously, and had to cut back on some services as we didn’t have the money to pay for it.

“Now with the extra funds under the NDIS, it means Matthew can receive an extra day of support and participate in more activities and enjoy the things he loves to do”, says Helen.
