What we do

The Huon Disability Network is building a network of people living with disability who are eligible for services under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) for the Huon and Channel area. We maintain this website to share information about events, services, providers and to promote our network.

We provide a collective voice for people with disability and their families and we consult with service providers and all levels of government on issues affecting people with disability.

We also lobby to bring more services to the Huon and Channel area.

To do this we need your help. If you are a person (or a carer of a person) with a disability and living in the Huon or Channel area, please consider becoming a member. Membership for families is free. Send us an email.

If you are a service provider and have, or want to have business in the Huon or Channel area, please become a member of our network. Memberships for businesses cost $100 per year. This money goes towards running our network and maintaining this website. As a member we acknowledge your sponsorship on our homepage.
