Providing support, empowering communities
Whether or not you're eligible to receive NDIS support, SSI Local Area Coordinators and Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) Consulants can help build the skills and knowledge of participants, families and carers to connect with mainstream services and community support networks.
Through our helpful resources, guides and workshops, we work alongside community networks and services to resource, inform and build the capacity of local businesses and organisations to be more responsive to the needs of people with disability.
Who we are
SSI is a community organisation and social business that supports newcomers and other Australians to achieve their full potential. We work with all people who have experienced vulnerability, including refugees, people seeking asylum and culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities, to build capacity and enable them to overcome inequality.
Since 2014, SSI has supported people with disability, their families and carers through a number of community based initiatives such as Ability Links and Ignite Ability® Small Business Start ups. We bring extensive knowledge in delivering disability services across NSW through our staff and participant expertise and their connections to local communities.
With a predominantly bilingual and cross-cultural workforce, speaking more than 90 different languages, our services are tailored to individuals and families to capitalise on their strengths, identify their priorities and meet their current and future needs.
We work alongside all diverse communities including people from Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander, Culturally and linguistically diverse and LGBTQIA+ backgrounds.
