Meet Mark: The Founder of Ability Links

Hello! I’m Mark, the Director and Founder of Ability Links, an organisation born from personal experience and a genuine desire to uplift the disability community. As an NDIS participant, a disability advocate, a Specialist Support Coordinator, and the NSW State Director of Physical Disabilities Australia, I wear multiple hats – each representing a commitment to the cause I deeply believe in.

Our mission at Ability Links is to fight tirelessly for the rights of those with disabilities. We strive to break down barriers, foster understanding, and pave the path towards equity.

With over a decade’s experience in Community Services and an intricate understanding of the NDIS, I am often called an “NDIS nerd”. This tag is a badge of honour for me as it reflects my enthusiasm for diving deep into the details of the scheme, exploring its potential, and leveraging my personal experiences to design creative, practical solutions.

I understand the challenges the disability community faces because I’ve lived with them. I’ve experienced the cracks in the system, the gaps in services, and the struggle to find empathetic, informed support. These experiences led me to establish Ability Links – a beacon of hope for individuals navigating the complexities of the NDIS. We are dedicated to helping you secure the proper funding and create a plan tailored to your needs.

We are not just a service; we are a dynamic, flexible community that invites you to suggest new programs and innovative solutions. We don’t focus on roadblocks; instead, we envision the possibilities and work backwards to make them a reality.

Ability Links is a disability-led organisation. I believe that those with disabilities and their carers are uniquely positioned to understand and address our community’s challenges. Guided by this principle, I’ve built a team of dedicated disability champions, all drawn from the disability community itself. Together, we stand in your corner, ready to support, guide, and empower.

I am incredibly proud of our ever-growing team – a group of individuals united by their unwavering dedication to making a difference. Join us on this journey, and let’s transform lives, one day at a time.
