Easy English guide to the Conference of State Parties to the Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities (CRPD)
This is a wonderful resource produced by the NSW Council for Intellectual Disability. It is an Easy English guide to the Conference of States Parties to the Convention on the Rights of People with Disability. We thank CID for developing this invaluable resource on the eve of the 12th UN CoSP, which will be held from 11-13 June at the UN headquarters in New York.
QAI has launched two booklets written in plain language to inform and raise awareness about violence against people with disability. We also produced 5 short videos using actors to demonstrate the different types of abuses perpetrated against people with disability including sanctioned legal violence.
The resources can be accessed online here.
AMPARO is an ally of QAI and we recognise the critical need for the work that AMPARO undertakes to support vulnerable people with disability from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Backgrounds (CALD). Without their assistance most people would be unsupported and their lives and welfare would be greatly jeopardised. AMPARO has undertaken significant work to support people with disability from CALD communities to access and engage in the NDIS process. Please see the links below for further information.
We are encouraging Queenslanders to make submissions to the Legal Affairs and Community Safety Committee in support of a Human Rights Bill. We understand this process can be difficult, time consuming and pose significant challenges for some resulting in important voices not being heard. The below link provides guides, resources and a submission making tool to simplify the process where possible.
