Since 1981 PWdWA has been the peak disability consumer organisation representing the rights, needs, and equity of all Western Australians with disabilities. We provide access to information, and independent individual and systemic advocacy with a focus on those who are most vulnerable.
PWdWA is run by and for people with disabilities and aims to empower the voices of all people with disabilities in Western Australia.
The Community Disability Advocate (CDA) will be responsible to build on the current disability peer support groups and individual advocacy approach to work with and involve the community in identifying ‘place-based’ solutions to issues that negatively impact on self-determination, choice, and control of people with disability in that community.
The CDA would assist in building the capacity of people with disability to self-advocate on specific issues and in the process, identify what role and support the local community could play in addressing local systemic issues that have contributed to the need for advocacy support.
Key Selection Criteria
The successful candidate must be willing to undergo a Working with Children and National Police check. Due to the location and availability of stakeholders it is likely that regional travel and outside of office hours working will be required. A Driver's License is desirable.
