How it all began...
In 2022 we finally answered the calling to open an organisation that embodies : community, inclusion, diversity, equity, excellence and joy in the NDIS and Mental Health space. After years of being asked to open our organisation from some Public Guardians, NSW Health and Justice workers, and our elders we felt it was time to take the leap of faith. Chosen Family was a dream to see individuals who fall within the gaps be involved in codesigning their future. Yes, that’s my business partner and life partner Jamie Bugeja beside me. We took the leap to open our organisation and began doing the work. Chosen Family are not here to create unhealthy dependencies on our services. Instead, our goal is to foster self-determination and set participants up for success.
