IDEAS provides a range of information services and products for people with disability and people with age related disability, their families, carers and other supporters that support self advocacy.

As a clearinghouse on disability we capture information with specialist expertise, experience, community and/or industry knowledge and contacts and then filter, interpret and disseminate it on request, through a variety of methods. We also provide "soft" information that is not specifically about a service but can assist people with disability to make informed choices about their daily living. IDEAS is widely recognised in New South Wales as the leading information provider in our field.Community Education programme with Education Officer available to come and talk to groups, staff meetings and attend Expos throughout NSW.
