In 2010, PWDA developed a campaign for the Federal Election leading up to elections on Saturday 21 August.

PWDA has identified key issue areas that need to be addressed by the next Australian Government.  We have also provided information on five important issues for people with disability in Australia

  • Making Rights Real – Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD)
  • Self Determination – Gaining control of our lives and our supports
  • An End to Institutions – Creating a non-segregated society
  • Mental Health – Recognising and Realising the rights of people with psychosocial disability
  • Violence against people with disability – Preventing and responding to abuse & neglect
