Women with Disabilities Australia (WWDA) is pleased to release our Performance Report for the period 1 July 2016 to 31 December 2017.

Our Performance Report focuses on major activities undertaken by WWDA during the reporting period. These activities are detailed under each of the seven key objectives contained in WWDA’s Work Activity Plan. Activities include WWDA publications, submissions, reports, representation and policy advice. Promotional activities undertaken by WWDA during the reporting period are also detailed in a separate section of the report.
A big thank you to our members, friends and colleagues who continue to support and contribute to this important work.

The report demonstrates the key purpose of WWDA: to promote and advance the rights and freedoms of all women and girls with disability. WWDA’s purpose is consistent with Australia’s obligations under Article 6 [Women with disabilities] of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and also CRPD General Comment 3 [Women with Disabilities], published by the Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in 2016. WWDA’s work is also consistent with a number of Australia’s national legislative and policy frameworks, including the National Disability Strategy 2010-2020; the National Plan to Reduce Violence Against Women and their Children 2010-2022; the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Act 2013; and the Australian Government Strategy to Boost Women’s Workforce Participation (‘Towards 2025).
