Aboriginal Ability Links
What is Ability Links NSW?
Ability Links NSW (ALNSW) is a new way to support people with disability, their families and carers to ensure they can access support in their local communities, outside of the traditional disability service system.
This new model of support forms part of the on-going reforms of the disability service system in NSW and will be delivered by 268 ALNSW Linkers, including 47 Aboriginal identified positions throughout NSW.
What do Linkers do?
Linkers work with people with disability, their families and carers to help them to plan for their future, build on their strengths and skills, and develop networks in their own communities to do what they want to do with their lives.
Linkers also work with local communities to help them become more welcoming and inclusive to people with disability. All families throughout NSW are able to access support from a Linker.
Who can access a Linker?
ALNSW is aimed at supporting people with disability, their families and carers aged 9-64 years. Anyone can contact their local Linker and there are no eligibility or assessment requirements.
