Mission Statement

Via an online platform, allied health professionals provide evidence-based, integrated supports to children, particularly those in rural and remote settings. This will be achieved by working with and supporting families to grow skills in their own community.

Description

Umbo is an online allied health service provider. We match a clinician to a family in the bush to deliver therapy online.

We support children to access vital therapy regardless of where they live, whilst also giving therapists the option of working from home -
whenever and wherever they like. Families who have NDIS funding are able to use this funding to connect with an Umbo therapist.

"If children can't be understood, their needs can't be met.... Alternatively that affects their confidence, their social skills and prevents them from speaking up when they need help"
