What is the Disability Advisory Service

The Disability Advisory Service is an independent personalised phone based service that provides information on disability services systems such as the NDIS. The Disability Advisory Service can also help you to find and make contact wit the services, supports and product suppliers who best suit your requirements. Face to face meetings with Disability Advisory Service staff may be possible under some circumstances.

Who provides it?

The Disability Advisory Service is provided by the Catalyst Foundation, which was formally known as the Seniors Information Service and which has been custodian of the former DIRC (Disability Information and Resource Centre) database since late 2014. Catalyst Foundation is an organisation that is dedication to “People Helping People” through the provision of information, referral, linkage, support and education.

It is a free resource that all South Australians can access as a one-stop-shop to discover and if appropriate, contact service providers and product suppliers for a service.
