Ability Links NSW – provides people with a locally based first point of contact to support people to access supports and services in their local communities. Ability Links NSW Coordinators, or “Linkers” as they are known, work with people with disability who are aged 9 to 64 years, their families and carers to help them plan for their future, build on their strengths and skills, and develop networks in their own communities so they can do what they want with their lives – outside of the traditional disability service system.
To find out if Ability Links can help you locally, please contact them directly on 02 6516 1920.
