Our Current Projects
We are involved in a diverse range of projects to amplify the voices of people living with disability.
Support Worker Quality and Community of Practice
We tackle issues raised by people who receive paid support and issues experienced by support workers. We do this through workshops and hosting a community of practice for support workers.

DEAA aims to strengthen connections between people with physical and sensory disability. We have a peer network in Adelaide, regional workshops on technology and an online resource centre with information on technology use.
Tourism Local Navigator Pilot Project
An outcome of the Jobs and Skills Summit in September 2022, the Disability Employment Tourism Local Navigators Pilot will test new ways to provide employers with information and resources about employing people living with disability, as well as connect job seekers with disability to meaningful tourism jobs. Our aim is to support small and medium tourism businesses in recruiting, retaining and promoting employees living with disability.
