Systemic Advocacy

First Peoples Disability Network is a national organisation of and for Australia’s First Peoples with disability and their families.

FPDN contributes on policy and programs at state, territory and federal levels. FPDN shares knowledge and information with governments, and advocates for community control and community leadership. There is immense knowledge, understanding, expertise and experience in our communities. FPDN works to ensure that our systemic advocacy work is genuinely informed by the lived experiences of First Peoples with disability.

FPDN is regularly called on for advice by politicians and bureaucrats.

FPDN is proud to stand with other First Nations organisations on issues of national importance and proud to be part of The Redfern Statement Group and the Change the Record Campaign.

FPDN is also one of four member organisations of the Disabled People’s Organisations Australia (DPO).
