Disability Information & Resource Centre
195 Gilles Street

The Disability Information & Resource Centre (DIRC) was founded in 1982 to provide a centralized, independent organization capable of providing information relating to any aspect of disability. DIRC is an incorporated body funded by the state government. The Management Committee includes people with disabilities and representatives of organizations that provide services to people with disabilities. DIRC's role is to "point people in the right direction" to end the confusion concerning where to go for information about disability and to refer people to the most appropriate places to meet their special needs. The organization offers information services to affected individuals, disability organizations, professionals, government departments, and any member of the public. DIRC provides a computerized information retrieval system as well as a library of books, videos, newsletters, and journals that offer information on disabilities in easy to understand language.
