Disability services

The City offers a range of community based services and programs for people with disability, their brothers and sisters and families.

Including people with disability in their community, and working with individuals and families/carers to ensure that programs and services remain responsive to individual needs, is the focus of the City's Disability Services Branch.

To be eligible to access these disability services the person must be eligible to receive services from the Department of Communities Disability Services, or be assessed as eligible for HACC services by the Regional Assessment Service (RAS) (for the Awesome Fun Club and Community Independence Program). Referrals are accepted from individuals, families or any agency.
