Disability sector

The Department of Communities (Disability Services) works in partnership with other government and non-government organisations to provide and promote services and supports to people with disability.

We work with the disability sector to identify and implement initiatives and strategies that result in high quality services designed to meet the individual needs of people with disability.

This section contains information and resources to assist organisations that provide services to people with disability with funding from Disability Services. It will also assist organisations that want to become service providers and require assistance in the initial set-up and development of their services.
