Community Resources

Overview

Tasmania has many community resources and libraries available to assist families and people with disability. Finding Your Way show cases what is on offer and leads you to Aides and Equipment, Accessible transport, travel, and community toilets, Toys and Games, Books, Medical Supplies, and Disability Assistance Parking and Companion Cards.
Share your information with Finding Your Way if you know about a local community resource or library that has not been listed; just click on the share your information tool bar.

The cost of aids and equipment for people with disability is often very high and this can present as a barrier to people reaching their potential. Some limited financial assistance is available for specific items of equipment if you do not have an NDIS plan. If you require one off funds for equipment, ensure that you have tried to source funds from community resources and have supporting documentation from a relevant Professional before contacting your local Gateway Service with a request for one off funding.
Before considering aids and equipment and proceeding with a purchase, to ensure the best solution for your family member/s, talk to a trusted person, your G.P., Paediatrician, Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist or Speech Therapist.
You may also wish to consider the durability, practicality, functionality, and suitability of aides and equipment before purchase. There are plenty of innovative and exciting products on the market.
