Who are we?

IDEAS is a membership based organisation with over 400 members, made up of people with disability, family members, carers and supporter of people with disability.

We are widely recognised in Australia as a leading information provider in our field.

IDEAS is a not-for-profit organisation and is currently funded by the Federal Department of Social Services (DSS).

Our vision is a world where people with disability live full, independent lives of their own choosing by providing them with free, accurate and independent information.

Community engagement, education and training & community events

Community Engagement is a crucial component of our business. We raise awareness of inclusive communities, and overcoming barriers to access for people with disability.

The IDEAS team deliver training and information sessions for people with disability and stakeholders across New South Wales.

IDEAS is regularly on the road presenting at both community events and major expos.  We are invited to display our information materials at neighbourhood centres, libraries, town halls, country shows and festivals.

IDEAS offers a growing range of awareness, education and training packages for people with disability, the professional sector that supports them and mainstream society.

Please get in touch with us for any community engagement events, or ask us how we can deliver the disability information you require for your community or organisation.
