Promoting Safety for Young People with Intellectual Disability: Community Researcher Positions
Flinders University is interested in hiring young people with intellectual/cognitive disability in Adelaide and Sydney as Community Researchers on a large project. The project is about what to do when young people with cognitive disability are not treated well in their everyday support from workers. We call this everyday harm. It is things that make people feel sad or offended, like being ignored or spoken to in a nasty way.
A Community Researcher is a person who is paid to share their knowledge with researchers in universities. Community Researchers are equal members of the research team. We work together to make good decisions about the research. In this project, the Community Researcher job is for a young person with cognitive disability.
If you would like to apply for this job, or find out more information, please contact either:

Opportunities for Everyone
Paid photo opportunities
CYDA are seeking original artwork and candid photos of children and young people with disability to use in our publications. Our current imagery is limited and often unrepresentative of Australia and our community.
We want to showcase real people with disability enjoying themselves with friends and families or enjoying individual activities in their every-day settings like home and school, or out and about.
We want to be truly representative by including a range of:
- physical and intellectual disability types – visible and not visible
- functional supports, mobility and communication aids used
- age groups
- ethnic, cultural and religious differences and identities, and
- family structures.
Membership and more
In this section are opportunities for families and caregivers of children with disability. We really hope you can join us!
We will be sharing opportunities here in the near future, stay tuned!
