Multicultural Disability Advocacy Association in Granville

By: Gurpreet Kaur.

My name is Gurpreet Kaur and I am one of the community connector project officers in Multicultural Disability Advocacy Association in Granville. In this project I am reaching out to Indian Community to raise awareness regarding the NDIS. I tried calling you on your number but I couldn’t reach you so I am sending this email to let you know about our project.

 

We’re from the Multicultural Disability Advocacy Association of NSW. MDAA supports and advocates for people with disabilities, their families and carers, especially those from ethnically diverse backgrounds. I am a part of new project Community connector project. We provide free support for people and children with permanent disability or special needs who are not yet connected to NDIS, need more support in using their existing NDIS plan or would like to make appeals/reviews to their plan. We are also ready to support anyone else without NDIS, who may need assistance in gaining more independence and participation in their community or workplace. 

 
The MDAA has been selected by NEDA (National Ethnic Disability Alliance) to focus and assist those from CALD (Culturally and Linguistically Diverse) and NESB (Non-English-Speaking Background) in particular. However, we are also happy to help or provide referrals to other supports for those who are not from CALD or NESB. MDAA is working in the Liverpool, Fairfield, Parramatta, and Cumberland LGAs.

 

 Our role is to raise awareness of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and other supports available to people with disability. We can assist people to apply for the NDIS and support them with other queries. We can also help connect people to the right supports, regardless of whether they are eligible or not for the NDIS. 

 

If there is anyone you know who might require assistance, we’d like them to know that MDAA is available to support them. It can be difficult to access the system especially when there are cultural and language barriers. Are you able to pass this on to your networks?

 

I’ve attached our general MDAA flyer and Community Connector Flyer. 

MDAA’s services and supports are free – someone only needs to identify with having a disability to access them.

Also, we are conducting an online session at Eventbrite next Wednesday 21/10 from 10.30-11am to provide information about our project and NDIS. I have attached the link below. 

Feel free to contact us if you have any query. I will be more than happy to help you out.

Day: Wednesday 21st of October 

Time: 10:30 – 11:00 am 

Please register through this eventbrite link
