Ipswich City Council values the contribution of each individual within our community and is committed to enhancing the quality of life for people with a disability.
Ipswich Disability Interagency Network
The Ipswich Disability Interagency involves members from both government and non-government agencies networking and sharing information between providers of services to people with a disability and their carers. We discuss emerging needs of people with a disability and develop partnerships and encourage greater collaboration of network agencies to address these identified needs.
The meetings occur on the last Wednesday of every month from February to November and any disability service agency within or servicing the Ipswich region is welcome to join.
The purpose of the network is to:
- Assist in the identification of emerging needs of persons with disability and their carers in the region.
- Develop new partnerships and encourage greater collaboration of network agencies to address identified needs.
- Facilitate effective communication and networking between providers of services to people with a disability and their carers within the Ipswich Region.
