Children with Disability Australia (CDA) is the national peak body which represents children and young people (aged 0-25) with disability. CDA is a not for profit, community organisation.

CDA receives its core funding under the Commonwealth Department of Social Services national secretariat program. CDA also receives additional project funding from the Australian Government Department of Education to expand the education policy capacity of the organisation.

CDA 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.

CDA provides a link between the direct experiences of children and young people with disability and their families to federal government and other key stakeholders.

Registration for CDA E-News enables you to receive CDA newsletters, updates and other correspondence by email. This subscription does not include membership to CDA or the additional benefits that membership provides. For membership enquiries please visit our Membership page.
