Statewide Project

Funded by the Department of Ageing, Disability and Home Care we aim to assist disability services across NSW to become more culturally competent by developing and disseminating resources and information. ‘Cultural competence’ means that individuals, agencies and systems have the skills and knowledge to respond to the needs of everyone in our culturally diverse community, regardless of the person’s cultural background.

We have developed a host of resources, most of which are available through this website, for disability and other human services to use.

We will continue to develop resources. We are also interested in what resources and information you need to provide services which are more culturally competent. Please email us your ideas and suggestions at mdaa@mdaa.org.au.
