Women with Disabilities ACT
WWDACT is a systemic advocacy and peer support organisation run by women with disabilities for women with disabilities. Established in 1995, WWDACT adheres to a human rights philosophy, based on the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and works with government and non-government organisations to improve the status and lives of women with disabilities in the ACT and surrounding region.
WWDACT, through its membership, has strong links to relevant ACT advocacy organisations such as Advocacy for Inclusion, People with Disability ACT and the Health Care Consumers Association. WWDACT also has a close association with Women With Disabilities Australia (WWDA), the peak organisation for women with all types of disabilities in Australia. WWDACT is governed by a collective derived from its membership and is managed on a day-to-day basis by the Convener and two part-time workers. The success of WWDACT relies heavily on the volunteerism of its members who are committed to improving the status of women with disabilities in the ACT.
