They offer a range of Disability Housing, Accommodation and community support services to help you llive as indpendently as possible.After retiring in 2014 from a career in Construction Management & Business Improvement to raise Angus cattle on their farm, They soon found myself missing the challenges that working life provided. During the course of the following year They met several elderly couples who were concerned about the future care of their adult children with disabilities. How could they ensure the future provision of care and support when they weren't around? The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) was imminent, and They learnt that a pilot scheme was being implemented across the Hunter.
In consultation with their sister-in-law whom operated a disability respite service, they established an organisation to provide Supported Independent Living (SIL) to the children of the parents They had met... and so Songbird was born!
In April 2015 they opened their first three homes, supporting nine NDIS participants.
