About Us

*** Coronavirus Updates ***

DSA is a dynamic for purpose social enterprise supporting 3,000 people with a disability, and employing more than 1,600 people in key regions of New South Wales, including Metropolitan Sydney, north to the Hunter and Tamworth, across to the Central West, and down to the Southern Highlands and Southern Ranges.

We support people to develop the skills and capabilities they need to gain independence and participate in society.

We enable opportunities for choice, inclusion and achievement at home, in the community, through education and training, and in employment.

In 1957, a group of parents came together to create employment opportunities for their children with disability. From these humble beginnings supporting a handful of young people from rented premises in Camperdown, we have become a dynamic, for purpose social enterprise employing over 500 people with disability and providing supports for more than 3,000 people in the DSA community.

We enable opportunities for choice, inclusion and achievement and recognise that not everyone’s journey is the same, that our participants’ needs can, and do change for a whole range of reasons.

We empower people to live the life they choose by helping people with disability to participate fully in all aspects of everyday life.

We celebrate when we see firsthand the difference the right supports can make in a person’s life. We celebrate improved health and wellbeing, involvement in new social activities, new interests in the community and a real sense of belonging and connection  to family and friends, housemates and workmates.

To ensure we can offer individualised, personalised support and meet the needs of our community, we continuously develop our services combining participant input with evidence informed approaches.

Our 1,633 employees service areas across Metropolitan Sydney, north to the Hunter and Tamworth, across to the Central West, and down to the Southern Highlands and Southern Ranges.
