Woollybutt Specialist Services was started in 2018, to help close the gap in the provision of services to people with a disability in the Northern Territory for specialist services. With a long-standing history in provision of support to people with a disability Cherry Reynolds, Occupational Therapist, wanted to ensure that with the changes to the disability sector that people would still have access to services that help to maximise quality of life and minimise behaviours of concern.
We provide the following services with a focus on building capacity and helping people get the most out of their lives.
