How We Operate

We are committed to listening and learning from people who live with disability, which is why all of our programming and events are co-designed and run by our young members. 

This allows our members to:

  • have better access to information they need and care about
  • build deeper connections with supportive peers
  • take action on issues they care about, in support of access, choice and inclusion, and
  • hold leadership and valued roles in their communities
