Autism Advice, Service Connections
The Department of Social Services has launched the Disability Gateway to improve access to key information and service for people living with disability. It provides free, nationwide information in key areas such as finance, employment, health, equipment, and COVID-19 vaccinations.
This resource is for all Australians with disability whether they are NDIS participants or not. Visit the website here to find out more.
