About The Rehabilitation Specialists
The Rehabilitation Specialists launched in June 2012 when co-founder Fiona Fonti identified a business opportunity to create her own venture in rehabilitation services. The core of the business is about helping people return to health and return to work. A range of services are delivered including case management, return-to-work and assessment services. Targeted interventions including return to work and executive coaching, cognitive training, resumé services and early intervention services are aimed at preventing and managing workplace claims and injuries, and at providing practical solutions to barriers that arise. The Rehabilitation Specialists also offer conflict resolution and mediation services, workplace training and education and specialist consulting services. Services are provided under Comcare and State Workcover legislation to life insurers and directly to government and private employers.

Over the past four years, The Rehabilitation Specialists have grown from three staff to 23, have successfully tendered for a number of large corporate and government contracts and expanded their geographic footprint to include NSW, ACT, Victoria and the Northern Territory.

Our achievements and growth can be attributed to the quality of our work, our committed team and our relationships with our clients. We’ve built what we aimed to build by staying true to our values and remaining adaptable to market needs.
