MDAA office closures

MDAA will be closed from Wednesday 24 December 2014 and will reopen Monday 5 January 2015


Every day, Australians with disability are assaulted, neglected, raped and abused in institutional and residential settings.

We call upon the Australian government to take urgent action, launch an immediate national enquiry and address the violence and abuse experienced by people with disability living in residential and institutional settings.

The Senate has called on the Government to establish a national inquiry into the violence, neglect and abuse against people with disability in residential, institutional and home care settings.

Please sign the petition

 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.

International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) is a United Nations sanctioned day that aims to promote an understanding of people with disability and encourage support for their dignity, rights and well-being.
