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.
The Disability in the Bush app empowers Aboriginal people with disability and their families in remote communities to make their own decisions in order to participate in the community and live a good life.
You can visit the Disability in the Bush website at https://disabilityinthebush.com
