Physical Disability Council of NSW

Who We Are

We assist people with a physical disability to live ordinary lives as contributing members of the community by providing opportunities for individuals to gain the information, knowledge and skills necessary to manage their own lives.

What We Do

PDCN is a systemic disability advocacy organisation seeking to influence or secure positive long-term changes that remove barriers and address discriminatory practices to ensure the collective rights and interests of people with disability are upheld.

Learn About Disability

As the peak representative organisation of, and for, people with physical disability, PDCN educates, informs and assists people with disability through submissions, research and reports. All our research and findings are available to the general public.
