National Disability Insurance Scheme
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a way of providing individualised support and care for people with disability, their families and carers. We are a registered provider of NDIS supports in South Australia.
Help with your NDIS Plan
We work alongside you to help you understand your NDIS Plan; as well as assist you to find, connect with and maintain the supports of your choice.
In Your School
We support you to transition from school towards future pathways including further training, education and employment.
Finding and Keeping a Job
We support you to find a job and give you ongoing workplace support within our ADE’s (Australian Disability Enterprises). We also offer individual employment support in Open Employment including time limited on-the-job training and post placement support.
In Your Home
We assist you with your personal care and help you develop and learn new skills so you’re happy at home. This support can be provided in the family home, rental home or other private accommodation.
In Your Community
We support you to reach your goals while using a developmental approach. This means we support you to access your community supports.

The Royal Commission
The Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of people with a disability was established on the 4th of April 2019 with the signing of the letters patent by the Governor- General.
Barkuma supports the Royal Commission: everyone has the right to live free of abuse, neglect or exploitation.
