Interact Australia which delivers a range of Disability Employment Services and individual support and care services in Queensland, New South Wales, Tasmania, Northern Territory, South Australia and Victoria, has acquired the NDIS arm of Sandpiper Care, its staff and the management of properties in Clayfield and Wooloowin.
IntoWork Australia Group CEO Poul Bottern said the move allows even more Queensland residents to access the expertise and resources of Interact Australia, “For more than three decades Interact has been instrumental in enabling and supporting change for people living with disability and disadvantage in the community.

We’ve been delivering tailored, flexible and effective support for more than 30 years, and have a dedicated and well-resourced team to ensure continued delivery of high quality care and support services to help participants achieve their individual goals.”
