History

In 1993 the Authority for Intellectually Handicapped Persons and the Bureau for Disability Services were subsumed with assent of the Disability Services Act 1993 to establish the Disability Services Commission.

According to the Disability Services Act 1993, the primary functions of the Disability Services Commission are policy development, service provision, funding and accountability, promotion of equal access, community education and consumer advocacy.

In 2017, the Premier of Western Australia announced a series of machinery of government changes to the public sector. As a result, the Disability Services Commission joined the Department of Communities on 1 July 2017.
