Who's New Horizons?

As the world’s first social enterprise, we know a thing or two about doing things differently. We’ve been a champion of choice for tens of thousands of Aussies for more than 50 years.

The social innovator

More than 50 years ago, we formed the world's first social enterprise, partnering with BP to create employment opportunities for people with disabilities. Since then, we've grown to become one of Australia's most trusted social innovators, supporting thousands of Aussies in hundreds of communities to enhance their wellbeing.

The partner of choice

If freedom and choice are important to you, New Horizons is the partner you've been looking for. With experience spanning Aged Care, Disability, Employment, Homelessness, Indigenous Services, Mental Health and Youth, we’re able to offer more options, and greater flexibility, whatever your goals or needs.

The navigator

The approach we've pioneered over the last half a century puts you in the driver's seat, while we help you navigate. Because we see you as the expert, we listen to you, learn from you, and support you to develop and implement a wellbeing plan that is as unique, interesting and exceptional as you are!

How can we help you get the most out of the NDIS?

Disability can affect anyone, and having the right support can make a big difference. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides support for eligible people with permanent and significant disability, their families and their carers. It's the insurance that gives you peace of mind.

As a registered NDIS provider and the world’s first social enterprise, New Horizons enables people and communities to enhance their wellbeing through a holistic and person-centred approach. We recognise people as individuals, and provide tailored services and support that are as unique as they are.

Together with Sandra, and others just like her, we can help you make the most of your NDIS package.


It all starts with a plan. With Sandra as an ally, you’ll get a personalised plan of attack to help you meet your specific goals and needs.

  • Case Coordination
  • Plan Management
  • Managing life stages, transition & supports


Our support services are as unique as you are:

  • Coordination of supports
