Disability Support Register
The department's approach to supporting people with a disability focuses on individually tailored and flexible ways to respond to people's needs, and assists them to achieve their goals and aspirations.
The Disability Support Register (DSR) is a database of all the people with a confirmed need for funding (Individual Support Package) to purchase supports that meet their disability needs or for supported accommodation. The DSR is used to allocate these supports in a fair and efficient manner when funding or vacancies become available.
The number of people recorded on the DSR as at 30 June 2015 is shown in the following table.
