Do you know IDASA:
Politicians, of both major parties, admit that the services provided to people with intellectual disabilities across Australia are dysfunctional and crisis-driven.
The Australian Productivity Commission, in its 2011 Draft Report on the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) stated that currently all services to people with disabilities are provided on the basis of limited available funding with little if any regards to the needs of the person or their family.
IDASA was formed in 2008 by concerned members of the disability community to raise general public awareness and knowledge of the problems facing people with disabilties, their families and the people who work with them every day of their lives.
IDASA is committed to maintaining an advocacy role, lobbying both state and federal governments and their agencies, for improved recognition, support and services for people with a disability and their families and carers.
IDASA fully supports the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
IDASA has no affiliation with any political party.
IDASA receives no government funding from either state or federal governments. IDASA’s income is entirely from fundraising, donations and sponsorship.
IDASA is a registered charity. Donations of $2.00 and above are tax deductible.
