Disability in the Bush has been created in partnership with Ninti One, with funding from the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIS) to address the significant information gap in remote Indigenous communities.
This project is connecting people in remote Aboriginal communities with the information and services they need.
The Disability in the Bush website has important NDIS information in Easy English, and delivers video stories from other community members with disability.
