Our therapists are raising the standard of healthcare

Currently, people with disabilities have poor access to support services, with long wait times, low-quality services, and a lack of choice. Ascend Health’s innovative model is boosting access to desperately-needed support services while offering invaluable training and practical experience to university students studying health related degrees. Our therapists play a key role in developing therapeutic interventions with our members in the community as well as helping our students in the early stages of their careers.
