Children and Young People with Disability Australia (CYDA) is the national peak body which represents children and young people (aged 0-25) with disability. CYDA is a not for profit, community organisation.
CYDA receives its core funding under the Commonwealth Department of Social Services national secretariat program. CYDA has also received project funding from the Department of Social Services to provide information, referral and systemic advocacy regarding the experiences of children with disability in relation to the work of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.
CYDA provides a link between the direct experiences of children and young people with disability and their families to federal government and other key stakeholders.
CYDA SEEKS YOUR VIEWS ON PROPOSED CHANGES REGARDING THE MOBILITY ALLOWANCE
A Senate Inquiry is currently examining legislation that will transition the Mobility Allowance to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). CYDA is preparing a submission that will focus on the impact of the proposed changes on young people with disability. We are keen to hear from young people with disability and families about how the changes to the Mobility Allowance will affect you and any other feedback about the legislation.
Information about the consultation can be found in the links below:
