My name is Liz Reid and I am the President of Physical Disability Australia and Director (NT).
It is my pleasure to welcome you to PDA’s blog’s page and it is something that I hope will grow over the coming year to be a place where we can provide information and engage with our membership.
It is somewhere that members can contribute to and to discover the submission requirements, please click here.
2018 is going to be a big year for PDA. We hope to engage with the government, NDIA and other stakeholders to promote the unique needs of people with physical disability.
PDA will continue to campaign and lobby for our members so that they may live a good life with dignity, choice and control. It will also lobby for a fair and equitable NDIS.
PDA is also committed to promoting the National Disability Strategy and encouraging both government and business to implement it.
By appointing Associate Directors, this year will see a better engagement with members and social media will be part of that. I encourage you to become members of PDA (sign-up for free here) as well as follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
2018 will also see a focus on governance and strengthening PDA as an organisation. It is important that PDA has quality internal controls in order to be a stronger organisation and can be more accountable to the needs of its members.
Finally, I wish you all the best for the coming year ahead and look forward to work on your behalf to see better outcome for people with physical disability.
