CALD and Disability Symposium Series
As the NDIS continues to roll out across South Australia the CCDD has hosted a series of CALD and Disability Symposiums.
The Symposiums are designed to bring together people with disability from CALD backgrounds with their families, CALD community leaders and mainstream service providers affected by the NDIS to share information and experiences, and to ensure cultural diversity is recognised, respected and reflected in all community services and supports.
CCDD is an initiative of Multicultural Aged Care Inc. and was established to support people with disability from CALD backgrounds, their families and communities to navigate the challenges and harness the opportunities of the NDIS.
The Centre for Cultural Diversity in Disability is hosted by and operates under the auspices of Multicultural Aged Care SA
