HCM has been providing Disability Support programs since 1991.
We are an accredited provider for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and offer a range of services to individuals with a disability, including coordination of support, supported independent living, life skills, in-home support, daily living, social skills and community participation.
We understand that every person is different, and therefore their needs and goals are all unique. We will work with you to ensure our services are flexible and suitable, to meet your needs.
Our staff will work with you and your family and/or carers to grow a strong, trust-based relationship.
What is NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is an independent statutory agency, whose role is to implement National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) which will support a better life for those in our community with a disability. The NDIS will provide peace of mind across Australia through supporting individuals to receive appropriate care and supports, through providing information to individuals and carers about available services.
The NDIS will ensure individuals can get the supports they need and achieve their goals, whilst also having choice, flexibility and control over their supports.

Supported Independent Living (Group Homes)
Hobart City Mission has four group homes that provide 24 hour on-site, supported accommodation for residents with physical or intellectual disabilities. These homes are located around the greater Hobart area, and provide an opportunity for supported independent living.
An important principle of our supported accommodation program is to encourage family involvement in the planning of daily support for their loved one. HCM is committed to providing a home environment for Group Home participants who are very much part of the ‘HCM Family’
When you receive your NDIS plan, it can be very overwhelming – you have many choices to make, about things you may have never heard of.
Our Support Coordination specialist will assist you to understand your plan, to access appropriate supports and services. This is all done with the aim to help you achieve the goals set out in your plan to participate fully in the community.
Our Support Coordination services will assist you with tasks such as:
- Linking you with the right providers to meet your needs
- Assistance in sourcing providers
- Coordination of a range of funded and mainstream supports, whilst building on informal supports
- Resolving points of crisis
- Developing your resilience in your own network and community
