Values and Principles

ADDC promotes values and attitudes of service, integrity, cost-effectiveness, consideration for individuals, accountability and personal responsibility, commensurate with good management principles to ensure rights-based practice within the disability and development sector.

ADDC is structured around principles, the aim of which is to:

  • Value and include all people as equals and celebrate diversity.
  • Promote human rights and empowerment.
  • Work through partnerships to build capacity in disability inclusive development.
  • Work with and engage disabled peoples organisations to build capacity and share resources.

ADDC has a set of Principles for Disability and Development work by Australian Agencies. This document provides further insight into the operating values the consortium stands for.
