Program to help disabled

A NEW program called Ability Links has been launched to provide a progressive new landscape of choice and control for people with disabilities, their families and carers.

The program is being offered by Mid Coast Communities.

"Ability Links enables people with disability to access all of the same community resources and opportunities that people without disabilities access every day," executive officer Ruth Thompson said.

Co-ordinators, known as linkers, support people with disability to make connections and achieve their goals so they can live the lives they want to live as part of their local communities. Linkers also support the broader community to be welcoming and inclusive.

For more information about Ability Links or to speak with your local linker, please call (02) 6650 9771
