What we do

ADDC is a collective voice within Australia and with partners in our region for awareness raising and lobbying on disability-inclusive programs in developing countries. We advocate for disability to be integrated and mainstreamed into all Australian international development programs and throughout the Australian aid and development sector. As part of this, we gather, develop and share expertise, resources and information on best practice in disability-inclusion in developing countries with practitioners and governments alike. We also promote, support and monitor the implementation of key international and domestic agreements, strategies and policies that seek to benefit people with a disability in developing countries.

Central to the work of ADDC is placing people with disabilities at the heart of what we do and amplify their voices through our advocacy efforts as well as supporting the people with disabilities to be active and valued members of their communities through equal involvement in international development efforts.
