PWDWA works to implement positive changes to legislation, policy and service delivery for people with disability.

COVID-19 has created challenges in many communities. People living with disability have experienced further impact due to increased infection risks and physical distancing difficulties for those that rely on support and assistance from family and support workers.

PWDWA works to implement positive changes to legislation, policy and service delivery for people with disability. The team at PWDWA stands alongside individuals to ensure they have a voice.

Thanks to you playing Lotterywest games, you’ve helped People with Disabilities WA launch the inaugural People with Disabilities WA State Conference with a $29,000 Lotterywest COVID-19 Relief Fund grant.

The grant will support event costs, registration fees and travel costs for low income participants. The conference will bring people together who have been highly impacted by COVID-19 to share their experiences.

Set for the 19-20 November and with the theme “Celebrating Self-Advocacy”, this will be WA’s first conference led exclusively by people with disability. The conference sessions will establish vital connections for people with disability and provide a range of COVID-recovery related resources.
