Meet the team

Our team has lived and worked in the Northern Territory. We love its cities and towns, communities and country. And we understand the unique challenges that can come from living in a place where what you need can be very far away – whether it’s groceries, a visit to friends and family, or some support to feel mentally well.

That’s why all of our services are designed to be fully remote – no distance is too great.
