Disability Loop Launch
Published on behalf of AFDO (Australian Federation of Disability Organisations)
The Australian Federation of Disability Organisations (AFDO) is delighted to launch the Disability Loop website at www.disabilityloop.org.au.
Disability Loop aims to give people living with disability and their families information about the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) that is up to date, easy to find and easy to use.
Disability Loop is different to the NDIS website because it is run by and for people living with disability and their families. It also brings together information from lots of different websites, not just the NDIS.
Disability Loop is a project run by AFDO and funded by the NDIS Sector Development Fund (SDF).
The Disability Loop website and it's accompanying social media channels (eNews, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube) are the online face of AFDO's Disability Loop project.
The Disability Loop website is one element in the broader Disability Loop project. More elements of the project will be developed later in the year. The main things we have worked on so far this year are:
The Disability Loop website. AFDO has developed and and will maintain this new website to house and promote information relating to the NDIS. Disability Loop staff have developed and will distribute an accompanying email newsletter, and accompanying social media activities.
Gap analysis and resource development. Disability Loop project staff have been consulting widely with the Australian disability advocacy sector about the NDIS. Disability Loop will provide a comprehensive report on the information needs of people living with disability and/or their families, and develop resources to meet identified needs. This may include printed and electronic resources.
People that are currently subscribed to AFDO email communications, as well as people or groups consulted with already will automatically begin receiving our new email newsletter. We will begin publishing that next week, and then roughly fortnightly until at least late 2016. We'll keep it short and sweet, and we will protect your information and privacy.
You can unsubscribe or change your preferences using the links at the bottom of this or any future Disability Loop emails, or by contacting us.
If you know someone who would like to subscribe, feel free to forward this email to a friend. You can sign up for Disability Loop eNews here.
