Support for people with disability

We provide flexible support and services to respond to the diverse needs of people with disability and their families.

What is disability?

Disability can stop you from doing some of the things that you want to do. Most disabilities cannot be cured and are with a person for life. People can be born with a disability or may develop a disability later because of an illness or accident.

Read more about disability and who is eligible for help.

What support is available?

The vast majority of people with disability are cared for at home with the support of their family and friends.

Many of our services help people with disability to continue living at home and participate in their community.

These services include:

Transfer of FACS clinical and allied health services to The Benevolent Society

All FACS clinical and allied health services will be operated by The Benevolent Society from 5pm Friday 28 July 2017.

What if I am unable to live at home?

For people with disability who cannot be supported practically or cost effectively in their own home, we provide somewhere to live to suit individual needs, locations and changing circumstances.
