Self Advocacy and Diversity: A model for CALD inclusion

This project investigated ways to support the growth of self advocacy
for people from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds in Broadmeadows and Shepparton. Findings suggest that there are multiple barriers to people with disability from CALD backgrounds developing self advocacy skills. Different cultures have different attitudes, beliefs and approaches to supporting people with disability; growing self advocacy requires an approach that values the diverse needs of communities, and strengthens the capacity of organisations to understand and work alongside people with lived experience.
