What is Ability Links NSW?

Ability Links NSW is a way of connecting people with disability, their families and carers in the community.

Linkers work closely with people with disability, their families and carers to support them to fulfil their goals, hopes and dreams. Providers are the organisations that offer services to people with disability and the community. Linkers work for these Providers.
