Based in Newcastle, Mind the Gap: Disability Matters works across NSW to advance the rights and interests of people with disability. We have combined our personal and professional experience to offer an authentic voice on disability matters and to advocate for an accessible, socially just and inclusive society.
We strive for a society with no gaps, where all people with disability live the lives they choose as active and valued citizens.
We work in partnership with people with disability and their families to assist them to build their skills, knowledge and confidence to exercise choice and control in their lives.
Our practice is person centred and asset based community driven - a strengths based approach that seeks to discover the gifts, talents and passions of each person we work with, linking them to their local communities and communities of interest. Our approach is always inclusive and centred on the person with a disability.
We also work with service providers who wish to transform their services and community and other mainstream organisations.
