Well done team!!

โ€œYouโ€™ve done more for me in a few weeks than my previous support coordinator did in a whole year. Iโ€™ve also learnt so much more about my NDIS plan since you started supporting me and realised all the things my funding can help me with that I had no idea about before. Thank you so much and Iโ€™m so happy to have you as my support coordinatorโ€ - a very happy Cairns client. ... See MoreSee Less

There is no formula to what we do.
No person is the same.
No goals are the same.
No support mix is the same.

We listen. We are here. We Care. We help.

We have time.

Our name may be a little hard to pronounce (eye-ara), but it was chosen for a very special reason... it means ''Village'' in a language from Papua New Guinea.

When our team works with you and your family, we become YOUR VILLAGE. We help you to BUILD YOUR VILLAGE.

Amazing I see the glory of God in this face

Welcome Cat!

The I'ara Support Coordination Picnic in the Park 2021 event was an absolute blast! Here are some of the fun photos that we got on the day. Thank you to all of our clients who came down to spend the day with our team. Can't wait to do this again next year!! ... See MoreSee Less

"This photo means the world to me" - Maddi, I'ara Support Coordination Managing Director.

Meet Skye and Nicole. ๐Ÿ‘‹

Skye (on the left), is the most kind hearted & incredibly resilient woman in the world. Skye was a paediatric nurse who campaigned to put Endometriosis in the spotlight for women who were suffering this cruel disorder.

Unfortunately, Skye's carer and campaigning was cut short after a vicious random knife attack which happened while she was taking out her bins one night.

Over the last year, Skye and i'ara have fought hard to get Skye an NDIS plan. After many set backs, we finally got the help needed to support Skye to live the life that she deserves.

This photo is when Skye met her i'ara Support Coordinator, Nicole, for the first time. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿฅฐ

We are so very blessed to be able to support you Skye. X

'Country is more than a place. It is inherent to our identity.
We speak about Country like a person, sustaining our lives in every aspect - spiritually, physically, emotionally, socially and culturally.' - National NAIDOC Committee.

I'ara Support Coordination supports many NDIS Participants who have been displaced from country due to medical and disability support needs. This can be a very distressing time for our clients and their families- to be away from home and not able to return for some while. Our team works very hard to support our clients and their families through these times of separation from family and country.

We are here. We have time. We are on your side. #iara
