Disability Support

In order to champion, assist and support Victorians with disabilities and their families, we offer a comprehensive range of services throughout the state.

Caring for children with disabilities can be challenging. While it can also be extremely rewarding, families often face a range of difficulties throughout their journey. The Anglicare Victoria Disability Program helps to alleviate potential stressors by coordinating a range of programs. Each one is designed to achieve the best outcomes for parents, children and adults alike.

Getting support

The best way to get support for yourself or a family member is to contact the office closest to you. They can provide information about the support service that is best suited to your situation.
