Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Disability Network of Queensland
The Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Disability Network of Queensland is supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with disability through a disability support network and advocacy service across Queensland.
The Disability Network
ATSIDNQ is a network of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with disability, and their family and carers.
The Network gives members the opportunity to connect, celebrate their strengths, have a yarn and share their stories and contribute to the conversation about disability in a culturally safe space.
The ATSIDNQ Team has Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff who work with members to listen and understand the issues that are impacting on them and within their communities. With permission, this information is raised at local, state and federal levels to inform Government and policy makers of the ongoing issues impacting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People with disability.
The Network supports members’ voices to be heard!
Side by Side First Peoples Advocacy
Our Side by Side advocacy service provides information, referrals or individual advocacy support to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with disability. An advocate is someone who is by your side to support you in raising and resolving issues.
Side by Side advocacy services are free, independent, private and confidential.
