National Ethnic Disability Alliance Community Radio Engagement Project

National Ethnic Disability Alliance Community Radio Engagement Project

The National Ethnic Disability Alliance (NEDA) has partnered with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to launch a new radio project, specifically targeted at new and emerging communities.

The radio project, known as the “Community Radio Engagement Project” was introduced after new data revealed that despite the high level of disability needs within the refugee and humanitarian entrants’ communities, the access rate to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) remains relatively low.

The Radio Project will aim to:

  • Increase awareness of disability
  • Break down disability stigmas
  • Introduce services provided by the NDIS to humanitarian entrants, refugees and emerging communities.
  • Direct the targeted communities to the right resources and by doing so, increase the amount of people accessing the NDIS.

Podcasts and Announcements are Available

There are 44 seconds announcements and two minute podcasts in five languages and in English to play on your program. These are free of charge.

The Languages are:

Arabic – Assyrian – Chaldean – Farsi – Burmese – English
