Message from the Chair
Dear Members and Friends,
In this e-Bulletin WWDACT seeks your support.
Women with Disabilities ACT in collaboration with Women With Disabilities Australia (WWDA) and our sister organisations Women With Disabilities South Australia (WWDSA); and Women With Disabilities Victoria (WDV) is seeking your endorsement of the attached letter to the CEO of the NDIS, Mr Rob De Luca.The letter calls for recognition of the multiple discriminations experienced by women with disabilities and an NDIS Gender Strategy to bring about more equitable allocation of NDIS resources. At present only 39% of people with NDIS packages are women. An explanatory factsheet about women with disabilities is also attached here.
We are encouraging organisations and individuals to endorse our collective letter to the CEO of the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) regarding gender inequality in the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
Endorsements will be accepted until 5PM on FRIDAY 23rd NOVEMBER. If your organisation or you as an individual would like to endorse our letter, please email your name and/or the name of your organisation to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
