PDCN created a series of videos to highlight the work that we do alongside people with physical disability. They highlight the pillars of PDCN’s work, the role of systemic advocacy as well as the services we offer to the community.
Advocating for Accessibility
This video explores systemic advocacy and how PDCN strives to ensure that accessible infrastructure is implemented in NSW, featuring PDCN member and five-time Paralympian Angie Ballard.
Peer Support Groups
The Physical Disability Council of NSW runs a number of monthly peer groups all across the state. The groups are an opportunity for people to meet up and share knowledge and practical advice as well as moral support. This video features our Blacktown group and Community Connector Carolyn Campbell-McLean.
PDCN’s members contact us when there are issues that concern them so that we can advocate for change together. In the case of our member Steven Yates, we worked together to raise awareness about giving up your seat for people with invisible disabilities on public transport. We listen to our members and assist them at a broader level when systemic issues may be too large for individuals to manage on their own, so together we can implement access and inclusion for all!
