Disability Support Link (DSL) is a community-based organisation that provides a needs assessment and service coordination service for people with disabilities. It does not provide support services itself - it carries out a comprehensive assessment to determine the person's support needs, and then identifies suitable support services, arranges them, and reviews if the arrangement is working for the client.  Disability Support Link aims to promote a person’s quality of life and create an environment that enables community participation and maximum independence.
