About Us
Care Support Network
Care Support Network enables people with disability to be supported to live the life they want.​​​

We believe in simplicity, flexibility and transparency to bring choice, freedom and quality of life for our clients and support providers.
Who Are We
Australia is undergoing one of the greatest social reforms since Medicare came into effect in 1984. In the past, people with disability seeking support had very little choice or control. Over time, the disability support systems have become complex, costly, unwieldy and inflexible – often making life extra difficult for people attempting to navigate it all. For the first time, we are seeing the opportunity for revolutionary change, thanks to the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

Care Support Network is part of this revolution. For a collective 30 years, founders Rob Evers and Irena Gelman have both been actively involved in Australia’s aged care and disability support sectors.

We know from real life experience that a simple "tweaking" of current services simply won’t solve the challenges. An entirely fresh approach is desperately needed.

We imagine a new world that combines the power of relationships, knowledge, technology and community.
Our Vision​
Australians with disability are enabled to lead full lives, connected to a supporting community where they can access the care, support and services that they want in a safe and supported way.
Our Purpose
  • ​​​​​​To operate services with greater choice and transparency for people with disability. ​

  • To enable people to feel connected and to be able to choose and control the choice of supports and services that they receive.

  • To ensure that every NDIS dollar is used in the best possible way to maximise the value and benefits for the participant.

CSN brings freedom

We believe in empowering you, offering simplicity and flexibility, and being collaborative with you.
