“ Until the NDIS, I have never had support. I couldn’t manage my home and was so frightened that I'd be evicted. Brightwater has helped me better manage my daily routines. I still have bad days, but I can see that things are slowly changing. I feel less fearful now that I have people around me to help me through. ”

Debbie, NDIS client
