As South Australians with disability continue to transition from State Government disability services to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), the state based Disability Information Service is also winding down.

This general enquiries service offered information about disability services and support in South Australia.

In the new NDIS environment, providers are better positioned to outline their services offered. The NDIS also provides information to assist people living with a disability, along with its NDIS Local Area Coordinators (LACs) who have offices servicing South Australia.

Please remove Disability Information Service contact details and replace with suitable future points of contact (some potential references are provided below).

NB: This includes updating any lists, websites, brochures, correspondence and other communications materials organisations may have included these details on in the past.
