Walking Alongside Us
Developmental Disability WA (DDWA) is the peak advocacy organisation in WA for people with intellectual and other developmental disability, and their families.
DDWA has a strong focus on indigenous people with disabilities. Their vision is to create lasting positive change in the indigenous disability sector by:
- supporting people with developmental disability and their families to have a strong voice
- partnering with others to develop more connected and inclusive communities
- influencing government and other decision makers.
Media on Mars partnered with DDWA to create a series of videos to encourage indigenous people with a disability to register with the NDIS program for support.
The video series tells the story of a number of indigenous families who are supporting a family member with disabilities. These showcase the types of supports NDIS offers and highlights the benefits of registering for NDIS.
The video series have been used as part of a wider social media campaign, designed to encourage indigenous families to register for NDIS support.
