House with No Steps is excited to announce our expansion into Victoria through a merger with fellow disability service provider, Interchange Northern Region Inc (ICN). This merger brings great benefits for both organisations including enhanced stability, additional resources, experience and opportunities for expansion.

As a small local provider, ICN recognised that it needed to join forces with another organisation in order to continue providing high quality services to customers and families in the fast-growing and competitive market created by the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

ICN’s Committee of Management decided to merge with House with No Steps after an extensive search for an organisation that shared their values and would provide increased opportunities for their customers and staff.
