Disability Advocacy Network Australia (DANA) is the peak body network for advocacy organisations; operating to provide advocates with the tools and resources necessary to effectively assist people with disability. We would like to advise you that our Conference is being held soon in Brisbane. A draft program is available on our website.

The DANA National Conference will be held on 31 October-1 November at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. The conference is one of the most important opportunities for disability advocacy agency staff, board members and associates from all parts of Australia, and from widely varying backgrounds, to share experiences, knowledge and understandings with each other, with disabled persons’ organizations and with representatives from government, business and academia. This in turn allows for more responsive and effective advocacy and significant flow on improvements in the circumstances of people with disabilities.
