Ability Links Program

Ability Links is a new state government initiative which kick started on 1st July 2014, and CareWest is excited to be offering the ability links program within Central West NSW. Ability Links offers a new way to support people with a disability (aged 9-64), their families and carers especially those who are not traditionally known to the disability service system. The program assists people to access community and mainstream services, knowledge, resources and opportunities in their communities, to enable them to live the life they choose.

The model is designed to promote the rights of people with a disability to live inclusive lives in all spheres: community, public, private and social. It is a critical part of the NSW transition to person-centred and individualised funding arrangements.

For more information on Ability Links or to be put in contact with your local Linker phone: 1300CareWest (1300 227 393)
