Australia has come a long way in making everyday life easier for individuals with disabilities. Despite this, however, this community still faces many challenges when it comes to living their lives as independently as possible.

Today, various organisations provide support services that are designed to empower and enrich the lives of these individuals, helping them live life on their terms.

What do disability support services include?

Support services are often very flexible and can be personalised to meet your needs or the needs of the person you’re taking care of. 

Today, many of these types of support are funded by the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and provide assistance across day-to-day activities that a person may find difficult to complete because of their disabilities.

Support coordination

Support coordination focuses on helping you or the person under your care make the most of your NDIS plan. It’s essentially a form of capacity-building support. There are three levels of support coordination you can choose from depending on individual needs.

Accommodation support

This service is to help you or the person you’re taking care of with daily activities while supporting a degree of independence. This includes personal care, complex health needs, grocery shopping and household cleaning.

Peer support programme

Peer support programmes allow people to share their experiences and awareness of disability-related matters with each other. These groups may help you or the person under your care build relationships within the community and access more empathetic support.

Holidays and camps

Certain support providers may organise leisure activities and outdoor excursions like camping, bonfires, fishing and swimming. These programmes help individuals with disabilities stay healthy and enjoy activities they may have had difficulty taking part in otherwise.
