Department of Communities – Disability Services
From 1 July 2017 the Disability Services Commission has become part of the new Department of Communities (Communities). Until legislation is changed, the Commission will continue to operate under the requirements of the Disability Services Act 1993.
Under the new Department, the Disability Services team will continue its work to advance opportunities, community participation and quality of life of people with disability, to provide services and supports, and to fund non-government agencies to provide services to people with disability, their families and carers.
Communities also partners and collaborates with disability sector organisations, business and government, and other stakeholders to improve participation, inclusion and access for people with disability across the community.
A number of projects and services will continue to be delivered in order to facilitate better outcomes for people with disability, their families and carers. The team will be working to continually improve processes for disability service providers and build capacity across the disability sector. These include: the WA NDIS, Local Coordination services, the disability justice centre, therapy services, Country Resource and Consultancy, and the administration of Disability Access and Inclusion Plans, required by public authorities.
