National Disability Insurance Scheme
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new 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.
In Your School
We provide services to high school students with disability to create, pursue and achieve their life goals. Each service is tailored to students at different stages in their life.
Finding & Keeping a Job
We are here to help you find work! Barkuma focuses on your goals, needs and wishes to ensure you get the job that is right for you.
In Your Home
We support adults with intellectual and/or learning disability to maintain an independent and healthy lifestyle. This support can be provided in the family home, rental home or other private accommodation.
For Your Family
We provide support for parents who have a cognitive impairment and children aged under 5.
Improved Life Choices
We aim to get the plan that is best for you and do this by providing a coordination of your NDIS supports.
Barkuma Training is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) which helps you build a career in the Disability Support Sector.
