Nominate a Don't DIS My ABILITY Ambassador

13 May 2013

Minister for Disability Services Andrew Constance today said that nominations for ambassadors of the 2013 Don't DIS my ABILITY campaign are now open to the public for the first time.

"If you know a person with disability who would be interested in contributing to this fresh, popular and much talked about campaign, we urge you to nominate them through the Don't DIS my ABILITY website," Mr Constance said.

"The ambassador program plays a key role in the campaign through the sharing of stories, experiences and promoting greater understanding of people with disability within mainstream community."

Don't DIS my ABILITY celebrates the diversity and ability of people with disability and is NSW's acknowledgment of International Day of People with Disability, which is celebrated each year on December 3.

The Don't DIS my ABILITY campaign runs from November through December.

Previous ambassadors have included high profile paralympian Kurt Fearnley, as well as business leaders, artists and advocates within the disability sector.

"We are seeking people from a wide range of backgrounds and of varying ages to represent the campaign," Mr Constance said.

"We are keen to hear from people with disability who live independently, or who are in supported accommodation, or are passionate about education, or who travel independently, or perhaps all three!"

The key themes for this year's campaign are accommodation, education and travel.

Successful nominees need to be available to attend a photo shoot, participate in media interviews, speak at events and write blog content for our social media campaign.

Ambassadors must be residents of NSW and must have a disability.

To nominate online visit by Monday 10 June 2013.
