A disability is an any physical or mental condition that affects doing specific tasks extremely challenging for the individual with the impairment.

According to a survey, more than 4 million Australians have a disability, accounting for about 18% of the population (2018).

This is also known as the prevalence rate of disability.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an Australian government program that pays for disability-related expenses. They give information and links to services like physicians, sporting clubs, support groups, libraries, and schools, as well as information on the support that each state and territory government, such as Sydney, provides to all individuals with disabilities. The NDIS is not a government-run assistance program. The NDIS is intended to assist people in receiving the assistance they require so that their abilities and independence grow over time.

Family and friends are the primary sources of support and help for most persons with disabilities. Governments, on the other hand, provide a variety of disability services, both directly and indirectly, to assist people with disabilities, and the commercial and community sectors also contribute significantly. Apart from disability services and assistance, the government, corporate sector, and community sectors all offer a variety of mainstream services such as health care, group homes, or accommodation to individuals with disabilities.

Any persistent condition that limits daily activities is referred to as a handicap. The Disability Services Act of 1993 defines 'disability' as a physical or mental impairment:People with Disabilities in Sydney (Australia) compiles data from a variety of national data sources to help people better understand disability in Sydney. Some people with disabilities face difficulties in regularly and actively participating in ordinary life areas (such as employment), and they are more likely to suffer from ill health, discrimination, and violence than those who do not have a handicap. People with disabilities who require assistance can seek assistance from specialized disability services, mainstream services, or informal caregivers. They may also be eligible for financial aid to assist them with day-to-day tasks (see Income support for more information on financial assistance). The National Disability Agreement (NDA) and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) both offered assistance to people with disabilities in 2018–19. (NDIS). People with disabilities can benefit from specialized disability support services that enable them to fully engage in daily life. They may be used to supplement other forms of assistance offered by mainstream agencies, the community, and informal caregivers. In this are the sections under the disability support services:- ● Primitive Childhood intervention services. ● Life skill enhancement ● Employment services ● Support live in the community etc. The National Impairment Insurance Scheme (NDIS) aims to provide reasonable and required support to people in Sydney with 'permanent and major disability' so they can participate in everyday life.The intensity of impairment is determined by whether or not a person requires assistance, has difficulties, or uses aids or equipment in three fundamental activities—self-care, mobility, and communication—and is classified as light, moderate, severe, or profound. People with severe or profound impairment are defined as those who 'always' or 'sometimes' require assistance with one or more essential tasks.
