Services - Finding Your Way

Welcome to Finding Your Way!


Services

Find Your Way with the services, supports, and resources directory. The services and supports on this site include mainstream services as well as disability dedicated services to minimize the need for you to navigate away from the site to find what you are looking for.

Services and supports are presented alphabetically under key headings to enable ease of finding. With each key heading you will find a resource tool bar. Click on these tool bars to find useful resources, e.g. articles, handy hints, check lists, websites and videos. If you know the key heading (i.e. education), put it straight into the search engine to Find Your Way. If you don’t, then choose from the alphabetically listed headings.

If you can’t find a service or support that you know exists, or you have a useful resource then click on the Let us know tool bar and we’ll make sure that it is included on the site.

If there is a service or support you need but it is not in or near your neighbourhood then click on the Gaps Tool Bar on the Home page and we’ll make sure that we share this information with service providers.
