Ability Links is a free program that works with people with a disability, their families and carers, to live the lives they want to live within their local communities. Ability Links is also about supporting local communities to be welcoming and inclusive for people with disability.
We place you at the centre of your own decision making. We also support you to link to the resources and opportunities in your communities to enable you to live the life you choose. Proof of diagnosis or a referral is not required and there are no assessments or eligibility requirements.
