"A COMMUNITY STRENGTHENED BY
THE INCLUSION OF ALL"
Belonging Matters aims to inspire people with a disability, their families and allies to enable people with a disability to have opportunities and pathways typical of other citizens in the community - lives that are personally fulfilling, unique, socially inclusive and empowering.
We invited 19 Australians to share their lives of connnection, belonging and contribution. Each story demonstrates how people with a disability contribute to Australian community and make it a rich and diverse society.
19 Stories features a range of videos and articles which show people moving out of home, working with the police, joining a band, hosting a radio show and so much more. It also draws important themes from the stories to progress the inclusion of people with a disability. We hope there is something for everyone, including people with a disability, families and other supporters, service providers, researchers, students, teachers, policymakers, and others.
