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.
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:
- help for families and children to give them the best start and keep them safe
- behaviour support for people with challenging behaviour, and their families
- opportunities for school leavers and adults with disability to learn new skills
- everyday living support
- help directing your own life through advocacy and information services and local support coordination
- respite (short breaks) for carers and people with disability
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.
