Virtual Centre for Women and Girls with Disability
About the Virtual Centre
Supported by a grant from the National Disability Insurance Agency, the Virtual Centre for Women and Girls with Disability will provide a central online space for accessible, inclusive and practical resources and information for women and girls with disability, their friends, families and carers/support persons. This project will address the severe lack of targeted resources available in formats that are inclusive and accessible to women and girls with disability.
The Virtual Centre will focus on four priority areas:
- Decision-making and agency of women and girls with disability;
- Leadership and participation opportunities for women and girls with disability;
- The sexual and reproductive health and rights of women and girls with disability;
- The right to safety from all forms of violence.You

Expert Advisory Panel
From 2019-2020, Women with Disabilities Australia (WWDA) is developing the Virtual Centre for Women and Girls with Disability. The Virtual Centre will be a one-stop website for women and girls with disability to access information and resources on four priority areas.
WWDA is forming an Expert Advisory Panel (EAP) comprised of women with disability to advise on the content, design and development of the Virtual Centre. The Expert Advisory Panel will ensure the Virtual Centre content and platform is accessible, inclusive and relevant, and importantly, guarantee that the Virtual Centre is developed by women and girls with disability for women and girls with disability.
