Member survey results

17 October 2018

Thanks so much to everyone who responded to our recent member survey – we had a record response, and we’ll be using the results for the upcoming Federal election campaign and in planning our communications.

The top five issues you want to see us campaign on in the Federal election are:

  • NDIS
  • Income support/welfare
  • Housing
  • Accessibility
  • Health

Members are keen to join in with election activities, such as signing a petition, posting on social media, talking to election candidates and visiting MPs.

Just over half of those surveyed wanted some kind of member-only space, with most happy to use a login and password to access it.

You like our newsletter and social media, with the new format of newsletter proving popular. Some members raised the need for more diverse formats, so we have added an audio version of the newsletter in response and will be also mailing more out to those who have requested it.

Members want to hear about these top five issues:

  • What PWDA is doing
  • Australian disability news
  • Policy
  • Conferences and events
  • Surveys and research

The survey also include plenty of comments about a range of issues, and we really appreciate everyone taking time to write them – we’ve read them all!

Thanks everyone for taking part!
