IdA aims to build on and develop relationships with government and non-government organisations that will enable IdA to continue raising awareness of the many issues facing people with disability and their families.
They aim to achieve this by:
- Consulting with relevant stakeholders, to identify issues of interest for people with disability, their family members, carers and guardians
- Campaigning for positive change on identified issues of interest, which may be specific to an individual and/or systemic in nature
- Distributing information and promote public awareness of issues that impact people with disability through the development and publishing of resources for members and the broader community
- Ensuring that the views and opinions of people with disability, their family members, carers and guardians are represented on government and non-government organisations committees and boards, particularly those where decisions and policy directions are set that impact the lives of the person with disability and those of their family members, carers and guardians.
IdA hosts members meetings as required, where guest speakers are invited to present on and discuss issues of interest and share information. The meetings also provide an opportunity to develop support networks and socialise. Relevant information is also regularly distributed via a weekly e-bulletin, where IdA also welcome contributions from members.
