Opportunities for our community!


    Welcome! This is the place where you can see new and upcoming opportunities to get involved with CYDA’s work! There are things for young people, families and caregivers.

    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.

    LivedX Consultations

    Each month, CYDA is facilitating paid LivedX consultation focus groups for young people with disability (ages 15-25) about what an ideal future looks like for them and how CYDA might advocate for that future.
