What is Disability in CALD communities?

What is Disability in CALD communities?

Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) communities have ingrained perceptions of disability that are associated with weakness and stigma. Disability is not well accepted in ethnic cultures.

A significant number of CALD families and carers prefer to isolate the person with disability often for fear of societal shame. This makes the person with disability more vulnerable.

CALD communities have limited knowledge and understanding of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), and the rights of people with disability. This prevents them from properly accessing the system.

Our work with people with disability can intersect via issues of domestic and family violence.

Why us

  • First hand knowledge and experience of cultural issues around disability.
  • Mindfulness around attitudes and misconceptions within CALD communities.
  • Understanding around support pathways to services.
  • Understanding around NDIS and NDIA, including applying for funding.
  • Multi-lingual service.
