Welcome to Ability First Australia
We are a national body of leading disability organisations working to achieve a fair go for Australians living with a disability. These organisations are amongst Australia’s oldest and most respected charities. All were established from the 1920’s onwards to support children living with the results of polio, cerebal palsy and related conditions.
Today these organisations continue to provide innovative and responsive services aimed at meeting the needs of people living with a wide range of disabilities.
We work together to ensure that every Australian living with disabilities, and their families, will have access to programs that maximise their potential by creating opportunities for them to make their own choices.
Ability First Australia is a partner of the Australian Government's National Compact
