With the rapidly changing coronavirus situation,
NWSS will continually update our situation.
Behind the intense protection and support, NWSS is keeping up its commitment to life enrichment as much as possible. Please see our good news stories in the Lifestyles Newsletter folder
We are repeatedly told by the people we support, their families and support staff that they don’t like the complicated, distancing and frustrating reception-interfaces and communication systems that services are adopting from the commercial sector. We have decided not to have a central office and reception desk.

WHAT WE DO
NWSS is a not-for-profit organisation that provides disability support in the North West Region of Tasmania.
We take up support contracts from government agencies such as Disability Services, Child Protection Services, Motor Accident Insurance Board and The Public Trustee. Private citizens can also purchase support services from us.
NWSS is registered with the National Disability Insurance Scheme – DisabilityCare to provide support plan management and direct support.
The range of support we provide includes:
- Shared homes for people with high support needs
- Visiting support to people living in their own homes
- Support to help people pursue daily activities in their communities
- In-hospital support
- Transport including wheelchair accessible vehicles
NWSS is happy to negotiate on all aspects of support, particularly
the client / support worker match.
In partnerships with other organisations NWSS provides access for involvement in sport, recreation and the arts. As an example NWSS has partnered with the Wynyard Yacht Club to establish the Sailability North West Centre to help people pursue sailing, boating and kayaking as recreational activities.
