Multicultural Disability Advocacy Association of NSW (MDAA)
The Multicultural Disability Advocacy Association of NSW (MDAA) is the peak body for ALL people in NSW who have a disability and their families and carers, with a particular focus on those from a Culturally And linguistically Diverse / Non English Speaking background with disability.
Our Vision is a society where everyone, regardless of background or disability feels welcome, included and supported.
MDAA views culture and disability through the lens of diversity. We see diversity as a strength and we promote this view in all our work.
We want to make our vision a reality. Over the next five years we will be focussing on three major goals set out in this Strategic Directions document. The details of how we achieve these goals and measure our success will be set out in the Strategic Plan.
The major goals are Empowered People, Leading Change and Strengthening MDAA. MDAA works towards achieving these goals through Systemic and Individual Advocacy, Capacity Building and Networking, Industry Development and Training.
