Who we are
For over 30 years ACD has empowered families of children with a disability to access the support needed to live a fulfilling life and to uphold their child’s right to reach their full potential.
ACD is the leading advocacy and information service for families of children with any type of disability living in Victoria.
We are an organisation run by and for families of children with disability. We are committed to improving public policy and service system delivery through our education, influence and support programs.
It’s what we are passionate about because we know from personal experience how disability changes lives and affects the family as a whole.
Our membership is comprised of families, professionals and organisations committed to improving systems and services for children with a disability.
Membership is FREE for families for the first year and it’s easy to join now.
ACD acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as First Australians and recognises their culture, history, diversity and their deep connection to the land. We recognise the distinct rights and perspectives of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. We also acknowledge that ACD is on the land of the Kulin Nation and we pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
