Housing, Transport & Disability Services

A disability is any continuing condition that restricts everyday activities. Disability exists on a spectrum and people are affected to different degrees.

The main categories of disability are physical, sensory, psychiatric, neurological, cognitive and intellectual. Some people with disability have multiple disabilities.

A range of support services are available to people experiencing a disability, including services to assist with transport and supported or subsidised housing.
