Disability information and support

The Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services helps people with a disability and their families to access a range of supports and services they need as they move through the different stages of their life.

To receive specialist disability services you need to meet certain eligibility criteria. Local Disability Services service centre staff can provide information about eligibility, support available and how to apply. Children and adults who are eligible for specialist disability services will need to undergo an assessment and prioritisation process to be linked with available and appropriate services.

National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

The NDIS is the new way of providing support for people with disability.

As the NDIS is rolled out across Queensland, eligible people will receive their supports from the NDIS. Find out if the NDIS is available where you live and how to apply for supports.

If the NDIS is not yet available in your area, you can find out more about disability support and services currently available in Queensland by browsing the links on this page.
