For many Australians, it will be the first time they receive the disability support they need.

With more than 410,000 participants (estimated to grow to approximately 500,000 over the coming years) and management of $22 billion in funding each year, this is an extraordinary opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people with a disability, their families and carers.
