Quotes from our clients

The Opening Doors Project has taken a load off my shoulders, knowing that Vicki will be accommodated in a nice home like she is used to. Pearl Cornwell
CLRS helped me when I was applying for the NDIS. They gave me the information that I needed to best self-advocate, and to make sure I didn’t get swept under the rug. And, to make sure I got everything that I needed out of the NDIS. Jason Clymo
The whole NDIS process can be overwhelming but it was great that CLRS sat with us through all of it. The amount of time we were given really made us feel like people cared about our family and saw that we got the best result we could probably get. David O’Dea
CLRS helped me get the most out of my plan. Donna really cares about me and my mum. Donna can explain to me what I can use my funding for. She helped me access services for the first time. Dianne Leetham
The benefits of Leanne’s home away from home at Waratah House and her volunteer work at Murray River Tea Rooms are multiple and many close to her have recognised a significant positive change in her confidence and communication with people since beginning her volunteer role. Rhys Glenn
