Department of Human Services


Disability Safeguarding Task Force
A Safeguarding Task Force has been appointed by the Minister for Human Services to examine the current gaps in oversight and safeguarding for people living with disability in South Australia.
Safeguarding Task Force information

DHS provides services for our existing clients or people with NDIS plans in South Australia, through:

  • Accommodation Services and Northgate Aged Care
  • Domiciliary Equipment Service (DES)
  • Independent Living Centre and the Continence Resource Centre.

The effect of the NDIS on disability services

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) now funds disability services, giving people living with a disability the choice and control over who provides their services.

Disability services provided by the Department of Human Services have been changing in response.

If you’re looking for services

Contact the NDIS or its Local Area Co-ordinators (LACs) who have offices servicing South Australia.
