Welcome to the Disability Support Handbook.
Everyone who accesses the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has their own unique story.
As of 30 June 2021 there were 10,929 Tasmanians who were benefiting from the NDIS and, of these, 6,281 people were receiving support for the first time.
In this guide you'll find a few of their stories together with details of the many support services that help people throughout our state.
The NDIS covers a whole range of support services, providing those with disability access to information and connections to services in their communities such as doctors, sporting clubs, support groups, libraries and schools, as well as information about what support is provided by each state and territory government.
Within this guide you'll also find contact details for organisations throughout the state.
