DDWA

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.
