About Us

Disability Services Australia (DSA) was started in 1957 by a group of parents to create employment opportunities for their children with a disability. From rented premises in Camperdown supporting a handful of young people, we have grown from strength to strength and now employ more than 500 people with a disability and provide a range of supports for more than 2,500 people each year.

We are now a dynamic for purpose social enterprise employing over 1,600 people in key regions of New South Wales including Metropolitan Sydney, the Hunter, Illawarra, Central West, Southern Highlands and Southern Ranges.

Our overarching mission is to enhance the lives of people with a disability by enabling opportunities for choice, inclusion and achievement at home, in the community, through education and training, and in employment.

We recognise that not everyone’s journey is the same and as a registered National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provider (registration number 39764501), we are continuously developing to offer individualised, personalised services that meet the changing needs of our customers.
