Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Support

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians experience higher rates of disability than do other Australians. After taking into account age differences between the Indigenous and non-Indigenous populations, the rate of disability among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians is almost twice as high as that among non-Indigenous people.

 

By any measure, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with a disability are among the most disadvantaged members of the Australian community. They often face multiple barriers to meaningful participation in their own communities as well as the wider community, facing double disadvantage because of discrimination on the basis of their Aboriginality as well as their disability.

 

Synapse is building partnerships with Indigenous people in order to build on their ideas, strengths and leadership. These partnerships will go a long way to finding practical answers to long-standing health problems such as Brain Injury.

 

Please join us in working with our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander brothers and sistas to reduce the incidence of Brain Injury and to build a way deadly future for us all.
