Disability support services provide care and support for people with disabilities. They are provided by non-government organisations, the private sector and the Australian Government through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
Some people with disabilities need only a little care, while others need 24-hour care.
A disability support pension and carer pension is provided to eligible people who are unable to participate in paid employment due to a disability, and for those who provide care who as a result of providing that care also cannot work in paid employment.
