What the Centre charges

The Anne McDonald Centre turns no-one away.

The Centre gets no government funding and no subsidies, and we really need money. But our primary responsibility is to people who can't speak, and their needs can't be assessed by their ability to pay.

If you can pay - if you're being funded for therapy, for example - we'll ask you to pay. The fee schedule for NDIS clients, for example, is below. 

If you can't afford fees you may consider a donation - all tax-deductible.

If you've got no money, come anyway. The important thing is that everybody who can communicate should communicate.
