Welcome to the Disability Information Service website. We are a free information service that provides disability and health related information to the Otago region.

On this website you'll find information on the services and support we can offer as well as information on support groups and accessible accommodation, eateries, shops and other services. Please contact us if you have any further enquires.

Joining the Dots.

A new service on offer at DIS is the ability to view, trial and purchase Attends continence products in a discreet and accessible way.  Several clients have commented on the limited availability of good, affordable, accessible continence products at supermarkets.  With one client noting how the products (at the supermarket) were down on the bottom shelf making it almost impossible for her to access.  She also commented the cost of the supermarket product was high.  She was very happy to be able to come to DIS with warm friendly staff and in privacy view and take home a free sample to trial.  At a later date she was able to phone in, place an order and have it delivered directly to her home within a couple of days with no freight cost.  Making the whole experience simple, cost effective and stress free!
