Ability links is a short-term linking service for people with challenged abilities aged from 9 to 64 years. The program will ensure that people can find information and be encouraged to take up opportunities to access their local communities - outside of the traditional “disability service system”.

Ability links offers people with challenged abilities a “Linker” who will assist  to boost their self-confidence and become included in their wider community. Linkers will work with their local communities to help them become more welcoming and inclusive for people with challenged abilities.

Linkers work with participants, their families and/or carers to help plan for their future, build on their strengths and skills, and develop networks in their own communities.

Early links program offers support to families with children Newborn to 8 years of age, who have been identified as having a challenged ability or are awaiting diagnosis. The aim is to encourage families in the pre-diagnosis stage and continue to support them until they establish appropriate supports following diagnosis.

Linkers can help you to learn about and understand your child’s diagnosis. Linkers can assist you to build connections to community, mainstream and specialist services.
