Disability Services

Disability Services Directory

Local disability service provision has changed since the rolling over of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in Western Sydney.

While there are still many Disability Services in the area listed in the Disability Services Directory, some are no longer available. There are also many new services available.

For more information about Disability Services for people with permanent and significant disability visit the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) website.

For more information about Disability Services and programs for people with a disability not eligible for NDIS, visit Ability Links website.

For general information about disability issues, programs and events visit the South West Sydney Ageing and Disability Support Services website.

Disability Inclusion Action Plan 2017

Fairfield City Council’s Disability Inclusion Action provides comprehensive details of how Council will ensure our City remains an inclusive and accessible place for everyone.
It meets the requirements of the NSW Government’s Disability Inclusion Act 2014, covering four key focus areas:

  1. Encouraging positive community attitudes and behaviours.
  2. Creating liveable communities.
  3. Supporting access to meaningful employment.
  4. Improving access to services through better systems and processes.

Your Participation

Service providers

The SWS Ageing and Disability Forum provides an environment of mutual support, co-operation, networking and information share for disability service providers. It also provides an opportunity for these service providers to advocate/ lobby on issues of concern for the target group and jointly consider projects that will address these issues.

The Forum is open to all disability service providers, aged and carers services and Community Care Support Program service providers. Service providers are welcome to participate by invitation.

To be registered and to receive information about meetings, contact The Multicultural Network on 9791 9765 or visit www.supportservices.org.au

Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month from 8.45ma (registration) for a 9am start. Venues rotate between the Bankstown, Fairfield and Liverpool areas every six months. For more information email Council’s Community Project Officer, Aged and Disability at mail@fairfieldcity.nsw.gov.au or call 9725 0222.
