Ability Links

Do you live with a disability? Are you a carer or family of a person with a disability?

Do you experience some other sort of barrier to living, and getting involved in your local community?

Ability Links is a new approach to supporting people with disability. The support we provide assists people to live the life they want to live as equal and valued members of their local community.

Ability Links Coordinators, known as ‘Linkers’ work alongside people with disability to find out what is important to them, identify their dreams, goals and hopes, and help make these possible. Community members, clubs, groups and businesses can also contact a Linker for information or support to be as inclusive and welcoming for people with disability as possible.

How  does it work?

Anyone can contact their local Linker who can provide you with information about available services and resources in your community, either over the phone, in your home, or in the local community.
