Having worked for different NDIS providers, this organization is always trying to see how they can meet the needs of their clients to the point the director goes out of his way to support clients when there is no support worker available. Also, they're always impacting skills of their support workers via in-house training.

I have been with Southern Star for no more then three months. It was fine for the first few weeks then it has became an absolute nightmare. We asked for one day a week for them to find someone as my current support worker needs one day off during the week. They tell me they are sending someone to support me, there has been no show due the a support worker coming first time to my house only to wrong address. They seem to play the blame game

The Agency was appalling the owners are all about fast money making under N.D.I.S clients. Had no respect for privacy also the support workers were not qualified or trained putting clients at risk. They higher students with no training cause it's cheaper for them. Would not recommend this agency. Plus the Owner Ali Raza used a disabled women to get his P.R and visa. Not a good look for the owner of the agency working to support the lives of people with Disabilities
