Aboriginal Disability Network NSW

Aboriginal Disability Network NSW (ADNNSW) is an organisation of Aboriginal people with disability, their families and carers living in New South Wales. ADNNSW began in 2002 to give Aboriginal people with disability a voice of their own.
 
ADNNSW is an incorporated association with a board of directors, six staff and volunteers. Our members are Aboriginal people with disability, their families and carers. Our directors are all Aboriginal people with disability or carers of Aboriginal people with disability.
 
Advice
 
We advise government about the needs of Aboriginal people with disability.
We ask government to consider the needs of Aboriginal people with disability when making policies and planning services.
We advise disability services about how to best support Aboriginal people with disability.
Capacity-building and community development
 
We help Aboriginal people with disability in their own communities to work out:
 
  • what their needs are
  • how communities can support people with disability to meet their needs.
Research
 
We work with researchers to find out:
 
  • about disability in Aboriginal communities
  • how to help Aboriginal communities to support their people with disability.
Referral
 
We refer people to individual support services. This part of our work is currently unfunded.
 
History
ADNNSW began in 2002 at a state-wide gathering of Aboriginal people with disability, their families and carers at Gibba Gunyah (Tharawal Aboriginal Land Council). People at this gathering formed a steering committee and asked People with Disability Australia to help build the network.
 
In 2004–05, ADNNSW was funded to talk with Aboriginal people with disability in their own communities across the state. ADNNSW then wrote a detailed report on the needs of Aboriginal people with disability: Telling It Like It Is.
 
In 2010, ADNNSW became a NSW peak disability organisation.
