"Northcott is one of Australia's leading organisation providing programs and services for children and adults with disabilities and their families living in NSW and the ACT. Committed to building an inclusive society where people can live the life they choose, Northcott supports people with physical, intellectual and rare or lesser-known disabilities to help develop independence, confidence and life skills.

In all that we do, we are driven by a commitment to 'do more' - to provide more funding, to generate more opportunity and to create more choice.

Northcott is a client-centered, values-based organisation. We support the introduction of National Disability Insurance Scheme and strive to give our clients more voice, choice and opportunity.

From 2010 through to 2013, Northcott was funded by the State Government under the federal initiative for the Young People in Residential Aged Care program (YPIRAC) to build a six-bedroom house in Wagga Wagga and a villa complex housing with six bedrooms in the Newcastle region. Guldmann GH3 hoists were installed on an H frame in all bedrooms and bathrooms to assist clients with mobility.

Not only did HLS products meet our clients’ and staff’s needs, HLS Healthcare has been supportive and consultative throughout installation and post-occupancy follow up. The overhead lifting system has assisted in changing culture associated with hazardous manual tasks and has been integral to implementing processes around the management of clients.

Since installing these systems, the number of manual handling injuries and in particular, those associated with managing client movements, has decreased."
