About CDAH

Community Disability Alliance Hunter (CDAH) is a peer support organisation, run for and by people with disability with the support of their allies and families.

At our core is peer support. We are forging new directions and are guided by our vision of an inclusive and just society where people with disability have genuine voice, choice and control. CDAH actively promotes and facilitates peer support to assist people to get the support they need to live the life they choose.

CDAH works toward its vision by providing information, mentoring, peer support, training and development to increase the knowledge, skills and capacity of people with disability and their families, by providing a collective voice and by building the capacity of the community to welcome all people. CDAH believes that people who have shared experiences can offer invaluable support to others who are about to embark on a similar journey.

CDAH’s work is driven by its Board which is made up of people with lived experience of disability.

CDAH is a unique organisation that can speak for people with disability in the Hunter with authenticity and conviction. CDAH is often sought out by health and education departments, the disability services sector and by private industry to gain insight of lived experience of disability in shaping policy and processes.
