The addition of the amazing team at Dolleina allows us to build on what we're good at, which is providing high-quality services to meet our client's individual needs.Nextt CEO Mark Mulder
The Nextt Group has completed a merger with Dolleina, a major disability service provider in New South Wales.
Over the past 20 years, Nextt has built its reputation as a specialist provider for people with cognitive, psycho-social disabilities, including autism and other intellectual disabilities.
Dolleina has been providing attendant care to clients with high physical support needs.
Its presence in the Hunter and mid-North coast has made it a leader in disability support across rural NSW.
Nextt and Dolleina have spent the past six months closely integrating their teams and systems into a united business.
Nextt CEO Mark Mulder said this strategic acquisition will allow the combined Nextt Dolleina business to expand its services, as well as its geographic coverage.
"We now have expertise and staff to support a broad spectrum of clients," Mr Mulder said. "At Nextt, our vision is to help our clients get more out of life. From frontline Disability Support Workers to CEO, every member on our team is passionate about delivering on that promise.
"The addition of the amazing team at Dolleina allows us to build on what we're good at, which is providing high-quality services to meet our client's individual needs.
"We have already begun sharing expertise and increasing our staff training and skills."
The Nextt Group provides disability services across NSW, Victoria, Queensland and South Australia and owns the Lizard Centres which provide early intervention services to young children.
Staff are 100% committed to delivering the vision, which is to help clients get more from life.
Nextt recognise that choosing a new provider can be daunting and stressful for clients (and their support staff).
In their experience, three questions are top of mind for clients and support staff:
- 1) Will transition be difficult?
Nextt have set up a dedicated transition team, to be responsive and help make transition as smooth as possible.
- 2) Can I keep my existing support staff?
Nextt also understand that many clients value the support their current staff provide. Nextt will endeavour to transition support staff, where possible.
- 3) Is my new provider qualified to support me?
Nextt Dolleina combines the experience of two specialist organisations, to support your specific needs from personal care to community access and skill building.
If you are considering a new provider please the Nextt transition team on (02) 9025 7648.
Staff are based in Newcastle and the Central Coast, as well as Sydney and Western Sydney, and are ready to support you.
