Disability Support Services Drop In

It is critical that people living with disability have access to high quality support services.  Almost one in five residents within NSW live with disability. There are a broad range of services available in the community, however it can be difficult to navigate the right place to go to get the right support. 

The City of Ryde will hold a support services drop-in session for people living with disabilities and their families. The session will include representatives from a range of support organisations and providers including: Uniting NDIS, Cerebral Palsy Alliance, Side by Side Advocacy, the Disability Gateway, Your Side and Centrelink. 

The session will take place from 10.00am - 12.00pm on Monday 5 December 2022 at Ryde Library, 1 Pope Street, Ryde. A mandarin interpreter from Centrelink will also be in attendance.
