    Overview

    An imperative part of the work of CYDA is to raise awareness of issues impacting on children and young people with disability and their families. It is not possible to achieve effective policy and practice for children and young people with disability unless governments and the community are informed of lived experiences of disability.

    A significant part of the work of CYDA involves providing submissions to federal government and other key stakeholders on issues relevant to children and young people with disability based on direct experiences.

    Below is are links to CYDA submissions. Hard copies of submissions can also be obtained by calling CYDA on 03 9417 1025 or via our contact form.
