It is almost five years since the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) commenced in the Hunter and every day it is providing new opportunities for people with disability.
Disability Services Australia (DSA) has been delivering a wide range of disability support services in NSW for more than 60 years and for more than a decade in the Hunter.
Every day DSA are growing, learning and developing side by side with the people they support.
DSA are pleased to introduce their new Senior Service Manager, Chris Poulos.

Chris was born and raised in the Hunter and started with DSA as a casual mentor for young people leaving care in Charlestown before moving to Sydney.
Chris expanded his knowledge and experience through roles in DSA’s community justice and employment programs before taking on a customer relationship manager role in their Community Support Services division. Now he’s returning home to the Hunter.
For Chris, working at DSA is more than just a job.
Every day he has the opportunity to see the difference the right supports can make in a person’s life and in the life of their family members.
There have been many challenges for everyone involved in the transition to the NDIS; for people with disability and their families and also for services providers like Disability Service Australia.
But DSA remain committed to supporting people to live their life the way they want to live it.
One of the ways they do this is through personalised work readiness support.
For many young people, finding a job can be a real challenge, made even harder if they have a disability as well and that’s where DSA’s school leaver employment support service can make a real difference.
With NDIS funding young people can access the supports they need to build their confidence and independence.
DSA’s employment programs are comprehensive.
They take the time to get to know each person – not just their barriers, but also their strengths, skills and interests.
They’re really excited about the growing opportunities for this year’s school leavers who will be able to connect with their new and improved School Leaver Employment Support service in Charlestown.
Whether it’s a job you’re looking for or an opportunity to build your job seeking skills, DSA can help you to find the path that’s right for you.
