Support Coordination, Advocacy and Information for People with Disabilities
PATH was established by the parents of children with disabilities in 1981 as a community-based information and advocacy service to people with disabilities and their families and carers. PATH is funded by the NSW Department of Family and Community Services/Ageing, Disability and Home Care.
What does PATH do?
- PATH is a support, information and advocacy service.
- We aim to be of service to anyone who has a disability, of any age, as well as to their families, carers and friends.
PATH aims to:
- Promote the inclusion and meaningful participation of people with disability in their local communities
- Help create a community where people are treated with respect, afforded justice and appreciated for their individual gifts and talents
- Represent, lobby for and raise awareness of the rights, interests and welfare of people with disabilities.
- Services provided to consumers are consumer centred.
- Services provided are based on the consumer’s informed decision-making and right of choice.
- PATH supports the ongoing relationships between people with disability and their families and carers, and with their local community.
- PATH seeks to continually improve our services by being responsive to consumer feedback. We welcome your feedback!
