'AD' Australian Disability: Fairness, Dignity and Equality for People with Disability

Australian Disability is a charitable organisation dedicated to fairness, dignity and equality for people living with disabilities.

We were founded in 2012 based on the principle that discrimination and stigma but also the culture towards disability have to change and be reshaped and owned by people living with the daily effects, positive and negative, of disability.

It is only through an authentic conversation about disability affairs, only then is the dialogue created and the catalyst for change ignited and given an avenue to ignite social advancement.

Our Values

As an organisation in its infancy and the changes at the societal level, with the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme but the cessation of a dedicated Disability Discrimination Commissioner, it seems as if we are at the crossroads in this phase of our civil rights movement.

Sadly there is a looming divide based on pure economics, in the era where being "disabled" is a dichotomy between binge on welfare or being an objectified motif (symbol) of inspiration porn.

 

We the disabled now have the vehicle to reclaim and remould the narrative of the "disability" identity, as articulated by Graeme Innes AM, chair, Attitude Foundation Limited.
