Our Battery Service has been discontinued

However, the supplier has offered to continue to supply disposable batteries to members at a lower discounted price to what was offered by us.  They have created a member only page on their website for CICADA members only – access is by password – prices include postage – and you are invoiced prior to the posting out.  There are 3 forms of payment: credit card, PayPal or bank deposit.  There is also a box on the form to include your NDIS reference if need be. Orders have to be in by 3.30pm each day.  We will provide more details about this service as they come to hand.

Monthly Meetups recommencing…

We have started our monthly meetups again. Please check our Google Calendar and Facebook page for the most up-to-date information on venues and dates. Please keep in touch with your local Representative if you have any questions and stay safe and protected.
