Background to the RAD Project.
It has been identified that young people with disabilities face an array of specific barriers that directly or indirectly limit their inclusion within the community. RAD Project aims to address these barriers by supporting this particular cohort to express their views, develop stronger connections and be adequately represented in decision making processes.
The RAD Project will be delivered in four key stages: research and consultation, training, establishing a youth reference group and recognition event.
This project is funded through the Victorian State Government Rural and Regional Local Government Youth Engagement Program and Rural City of Wangaratta with a combined total cost of $32, 000.
