About

All In! is an initiative developed by Northcott in collaboration with NSW Government Ageing, Disability and Home Care (ADHC) to help create a more inclusive community for children with disabilities.

Currently 4 million Australians, including 1.3 million people in NSW, live with a disability that affects their ability to interact with others, communicate, get around their local community and care for themselves. Families, carers and the broader community are all affected by disability but there are ways to make a person with a disability, and those around them, feel more included and valued as a member of the community.

All In! was developed to provide information and resources to help everyone include children with disabilities in their activities.

It works by asking three simple questions about the child, the situation and their age. All In! then provides advice based on the answers you give. The advice is presented in a clear and concise report that can be printed, emailed and shared with others.

The advice provided by All In! is general and should not be regarded as a diagnosis. If you are concerned about a child’s development, please contact a healthcare provider for specific information. If you are in a situation not described on this website, please contact Northcott at northcott@northcott.com.au or phone 1800 818 286 for information specific to your situation.
