About Ascend Health

Our story

Ascend Health was founded with the goal to enhance and elevate the quality of disability services within our community. Since 2017, we have dedicated ourselves to assisting members of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in various aspects, including daily activities, social and community involvement, as well as therapeutic support.

At Ascend Health, we take immense pride in our reputation for delivering top-notch disability support and services. We achieve this by exclusively employing university students pursuing health-related degrees, who undergo workplace training and follow a comprehensive career development program. This ensures that our newly graduated health professionals are well-prepared for their roles in community health and disability services. Our ultimate objective is to create a future where individuals have convenient access to a wide range of health professionals in their homes, with the assistance of university students who contribute to the professionals' interventions and assessments through their discipline-related knowledge.

More services in more places

Ascend Health started with just a handful of support workers throughout inner city Perth. We now have nearly 100 support workers throughout Perth in Western Australia, Adelaide in South Australia, Sydney in New South Wales, and our Queensland team on the Sunshine Coast. Our therapy team has also expanded to include new graduate and senior physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, and therapy assistants, with many of our very first support workers working in our therapy team.

Our Mission

Unite health professionals and students worldwide to provide exceptional, high-quality community health services.

Our Vision

We will ignite a revolution in community health and disability support services, setting an unwavering standard of excellence. Through nurturing and empowering university students, we will unleash their creativity and knowledge, cultivating a new era of passionate health professionals who surpass all boundaries within the industry. Together, we will redefine what is possible and leave an indelible mark on the future of healthcare.

Our students are what makes Ascend so unique

We only use university health and therapy students as support workers. They attend regular training sessions throughout the year, with many being accepted into therapy roles once they graduate. That means our therapists have many years of working within the NDIS as soon as they begin their therapy careers. Make the most of young health professionals that are passionate and motivated to ensure you have the highest quality support possible.
