How can Clubhouse help you with the transition to NDIS? 

In the lead up to the NDIS rollout in July 2018, Clubhouse can assist you with:

  • The NDIS application process.
  • Preparing you for your NDIS planning meeting.
  • Accompanying you to your NDIS planning meeting.
  • Providing support to you with your individual plan or with the plan for the person you support.

We are also holding weekly information sessions, house meetings and assistance to access free community NDIS forums and workshops. Additionally, we know that change can be confusing, and there is a lot of information to take in.  If you have unanswered questions, simply contact us here and we will be in touch.


Funding for the NDIS is provided through a range of supports that are divided into CORE supports and CAPACITY supports.

Under these categories, Stepping Stone provides the following supports. Click on the supports below for more information:
