WWDA and CYDA are running focus groups for girls, young women, feminine-identifying and non-binary young people with disability aged between 15-30 years.

We want to hear your stories, experiences and ideas so we can share them with the Disability Royal Commission (DRC) to let them know what you think could be done better for people with disability.  The DRC will use this important information and suggestions given by young people to make recommendations to the Australian Government, so that positive changes can be implemented. Through the DRC we can create the future we want, together!

Come and join one of our groups and have your say! Dates to choose from:

Monday 13th September 5:30 – 7:30 pm

Saturday 18th September 2:00 – 4:00 pm

Tuesday 21st September 12:00 – 2:00 pm

To show our appreciation, all participants will be paid with a $100 voucher.

We acknowledge that sharing your stories may be hard and we will have a wellbeing officer at the forum to provide support if needed and make referrals for you for extra support if required.

If you can’t participate in one of these sessions but still want to have your say we will also be launching a survey soon for you to complete.  Watch this space!

If you have any questions you can contact the Project Officer, Tess Moodie at tessm@wwda.org.au or on 0459 887 170.

If you are unsure about these sessions, or have any concerns about sharing your story with the DRC, you can contact Your Story for free legal advice on 1800 771 800 or at yourstory@legalaid.tas.gov.au
