EnableNetFrustrated at not being able to find the disability information that you need? Fed up with hours of fruitless surfing of the Internet? Sick of cluttered sites with things all over the place? Don’t give up – go to

EnableNet is a Disability Portal created and maintained by the Disability Information and Resource Centre (DIRC). It is the one-stop site on the Internet for information on all aspects of disability.

DIRCDIRC has structured EnableNet in a clear, reasonable and consistent way to ensure that you can find the information you want with a minimum of fuss.

This is not just another website with a page of links. It is an access point to more than 2,700 websites. To make life easier the contents of all websites are summarised so that you can decide at a glance if they are relevant for you. And the sites are all indexed using the EnableNet Thesaurus so that you can browse for the specific subject area that interests you.

The main subject categories include:

Aboriginal Australians and Indigenous Issues


Accommodation Options and Living Skills

Advocacy/Social Justice

Aids and Equipment

Community Services

Disabilities, Diseases and Disorders



Finance and Management

Human Relations/Psychology

Information and Library Services

Politics and Legislation

Recreation, Sport and the Arts

Statistics and Surveys


You will also find a News and Events section with media releases and details of Australian and international disability-related conferences, workshops and seminars.

EnableNet is, however, about more than information. It’s about developing a sense of community. We do this by providing chat rooms, message areas and a place for fun and games.

Another great feature of EnableNet is that you can set it up to accommodate your particular needs. We provide you with options to change colours, size of font and turn off graphics so that EnableNet appears on your screen in the way you want it. (As Joe Clark said, “Accessibility is about accommodating characteristics a person cannot change by providing options.”)

And, we want to enable people with a disability to benefit from the use of, and developments in, information technology. So we provide links to a range of on-line services (banking, shopping etc) to make life easier for you. EnableNet is not only for research, it’s also for recreation, conversation and day-to-day business!

So, leave your frustrations behind. Visit EnableNet today. Find the information you want, make friends, get involved, have fun.

EnableNet – access on-line the way YOU want it.
