Welcome to our new quarterly newsletter

What a great start to 2015!  There has been so much going on we thought it was about time to launch a new quarterly newsletter to share recent highlights and keep you up to date with some of the exciting things that are happening over the next few months. Our first newsletter includes the launch of our new website, our NBI ambassadors plus shine a spotlight on the wonderful local support from our families, volunteers, business partners and community friends.

You can also keep up to date by following us on facebook or use #NBIsupport. We'd love to hear what you'd like to be included in our newsletters so do let us know!

Happy Reading,
Carolyn and and the team at NBI

Watch our new video!


On 13th March we launched our new website with the help of our amazing new ambassadors Guy Leech and Josie McLean.  We had a wonderful turn out of people interested in seeing the new direction of the website.  Josie pressed the LIVE button and the new NBI website flashed up on the big screen to much applause!
The new look site is easy to navigate with the landing page displaying services available by age, from the Kookaburra Playgroup through to 25+ years. NBI supports and celebrates individuality and recognises everyone has different wants, needs and dreams, so Tailored Solutions are very important, especially with the up coming roll out of the NDIS. Other features include language choice, an events calendar, some wonderful video stories from families and people who have worked as volunteers, and bright clear photography underline what NBI is about.
We would love your feedback on the site, videos and new brochures so please drop us a line.


***Josie McLean***

We are delighted that Josie is able to support NBI as an Ambassador. Josie has an impressive record as a Special Olympian with a particular focus on Ten Pin Bowling. She has represented and won gold for NSW at the National games every year since 2010, represented Australia in the Trans-Tasman and Asia Pacific games and in 2015 will travel to Los Angeles to represent Australia at the World Games. She was named Sports Personality of the Year 2014 for the Northern Beaches Region.
When not scoring strikes for her country Josie can be found dancing jazz ballet or working at BigW at Warringah Mall, where she has worked for over 14 years.
Josie and her dad Peter also shared their story with us, you can watch it here.
