Welcome to the Community Door information portal on disability.
Disability touches the lives of many Queenslanders, with close to one in five Queenslanders living with a disability. An estimated 236,200 Queenslanders of all ages have a profound or severe disability. People with a profound or severe disability require assistance in everyday activities, such as self-care, mobility and communication. Providing people with a disability with the support to participate in all domains of life is critical.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) started in Queensland from 1 July 2016 and is now fully implemented across the state. The NDIS has transformed the way people with disability access disability care and supports, and revolutionised the way disability supports are funded and delivered.
In this section you will find current news, resources and other information relevant to people with a disability, family and friends, and those working in the disability sector.
