Aboriginal people with a disability, and their families/carers, lack access to appropriate services and supports, experience discrimination and dislocation from their communities, and have limited education and employment options.

The aims of this collaborative research project were to:

  • scope existing training pathways for professionals and community members in the disability field and explore if training pathways meet the needs of Aboriginal clients, families/carers and service providers
  • develop recommendations and an action plan for improved training pathways that are inclusive of, and responsive to, the needs of Aboriginal people with a disability.
