“I would not have accessed the NDIS without PCCS” said Helen, whose application was previously declined. With PCCS help, Helen’s access was approved within two weeks and she now has a plan and a support coordinator to assist the implementation.
“It’s the first time I’ve been out by myself in over a year!” With PCCS help, Charlotte used her NDIS funds to arrange an assessment, which recommended a dual-motor recliner chair and a bariatric four-wheeled walker.
PCCS has helped reduce my pain levels, provided support and refreshed my employability. There are genuine people out there who actually do care!
I started to have hope and an avenue to create a different future. My wife and I are more connected, and my daughter is happy for the first time in years!”
It is the first time in a long time, where I feel heard and understood. I feel I now have the confidence to move forward, and connect with new friends.
Having a good listener by my side connecting me to services that I needed helped me create a better future for myself and my son.
My PCCS social worker was great at encouraging me on the journey and out of isolation. Social skills are like a muscle that needs to be exercised. Experience with groups helps build that muscle.
I didn’t know there were things like this out there. Recovery might have been easier if I’d come earlier.
I’ve developed a positive outlook to life as a result of socialising and being around other people who’ve gone through similar experiences.
My PCCS social worker found a path for me, I couldn’t see it before but that’s the path I’m walking now, and it’s all positive! I have hope for the future – that changes everything.
PCCS helped reduce my anxiety and build my self-confidence. I have a sense of belonging and I’m more positive in my recovery.
The more my isolation increased, my pain and hopelessness also increased. PCCS is a little like natural pain relief for your mind and body.
My confidence to reach out for connection and support increased. I am more social, mobile and content. My recovery is under control and I’m planning a new future.
As well as enriching activities, the supportive group dynamic helped build my confidence to face the job interviews I was just launching into.
Talking with my PCCS Social Worker and her support with what I’m going through is helpful. I’m not alone on this journey and I now know what services I can access.
