My Disability Matters

Disability advocate Dale Reardon has recently launched a website called My Disability Matters. The website aims to become the first one stop shop for disability news and opinion, increasing the representation of people living with a disability through their own words, views and experiences.

 

My Disability Matters has been launched to cover major issues arising, including changes to the NDIS, and will offer advocacy and agency to people with all forms of disability.

 

Mr. Reardon has been blind since he was 17 after losing his sight due to Leber's Optic Atrophy. He has since  obtained a Law Degree with First Class Honors, has served as a Director of Royal Guide Dogs Association of Tasmania, was the inaugural founding President of Blind Citizens Australia, Tasmanian Branch, and is currently a member of the NDIS Independent Advisory Council.

 

Mr. Reardon is asking people to complete a short survey to help guide the direction of the My Disability Matters website. 

 

The survey is designed to allow you to vent frustrations, share perspectives and have your say in how the website can best deliver what you are currently lacking in the online community - a supportive, representative space that is defined by people with a disability for people with a disability.
