A Single Voice: the National Disability and Carer Alliance
The National Disability and Carer Alliance (the Alliance) was formed in 2009 by the Australian Federation of Disability Organisations, Carers Australia and National Disability Services to pursue the structural and systemic changes necessary to transform the lives of people with a disability, their families and carers in this country.
The Alliance’s vision is an Australian society that ensures the equal social, economic, civic and cultural participation of people with disabilities, their families and carers.
The Alliance’s mission is to:
- Develop and promote policy and programs that provide timely and dignified support for people with disabilities, their families and carers.
- Develop and promote policy and programs for people with disabilities, their families and carers based on the principles of entitlement, individualised responses, self determination, portability and cultural sensitivity.
- Support the implementation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities throughout all Australian jurisdictions.
- Build broad community support for the full inclusion of people with disabilities their families and carers in all their diversity.
