In 2021 Women With Disabilities Australia (WWDA) received funding for the first time from the Australian Federal Government’s Office for Women (OFW) Women’s Leadership and Development program to represent women, feminine identifying and non-binary people with disability as a National Women’s Alliance.
The National Women’s Alliances (the Alliances) include six organisations that represent diverse women’s voices. Alliances advocate for the economic security, safety, and leadership opportunities of women in Australia and collaborate with policymakers to inform Australian Government policies that impact women.
The following six specialist women’s organisations are funded by the Australian Government under the Women’s Leadership and Development Program:
- National Women’s Safety Alliance
- Equality Rights Alliance
- Harmony Alliance
- National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Women’s Alliance
- National Rural Women’s Coalition
- Women with Disabilities Australia
