Department of Human Services


People with disability

The department is working closely with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to ensure people with disability are prioritised in our response to COVID-19.

To protect the people we support in Accommodation Services disability group homes, from Wednesday 18 March 2020 some visitor and activity restrictions will be in place:

  • There will be restrictions in place for visitors in group homes and Northgate Aged Care facility
  • There will be restrictions in place activities outside homes.

These physical distancing arrangements are regularly being reviewed and updated according to the advice of health authorities. The measures are to support people with a disability being supported to live in the community to stay safe and well.

Visit the Accommodation Services Families Update page for further information.
