Disability and Carers

DSS helps to support people with disability through programs and services and benefits and payments. DSS also helps to support Australians' mental health.  Further support is provided through grants and funding for organisations delivering services for people with disability and people with mental illness.

DSS works to support carers of people with a disability or severe medical condition, or frail aged, through programs and services, and benefits and payments for carers.

More information is available under publications and articles, standards, and related agencies and sites.
