DIRC

Sunday 14 June 2009

DIRCThe Disability Information and Resource Centre (DIRC) provides a professional and friendly information and referral service to the people of South Australia. It aims to generate an atmosphere that is welcoming and empowering. DIRC strives for creativity and innovation in the development and delivery of its services.

DIRC offers a variety of services to the community.

The DIRC library and meeting rooms, situated on the premises, are popular gathering spots for a wide range of individuals and groups.

DIRC also collects and publishes information on all aspects of disability in both hardcopy and digital (database) format.

Clerical and Administrative services are available subject to negotiation.

DIRC services are available to community, corporate, non-government and government agencies and bodies.

The concept of developing a one-stop-shop for information on all aspects of disability was a topic of discussion and debate amongst disability advocates during the late 1970s. The need for the establishment of a Resource Centre for people with a disability and disability-related agencies was also identified. The International Year of Disabled Persons in 1981 gave an added impetus to those advocating for such a Centre.

DIRC was established under the South Australian Associations Incorporation Act on 16 December 1982. It began its operations in June 1983 from premises in Hutt Street. DIRC’s current premises at 195 Gilles Street were built and furnished through corporate and public donations as part of the State’s Jubilee 150 celebrations.
