Raising awareness of Australians with disability during COVID-19
Amplifying calls for greater support for Aussies with intellectual disability during coronavirus pandemic
Upstride worked with Inclusion Australia and a range of partner organisations - Disability Advocacy Network Australia and also Women With Disabilities Australia - in 2020 to draw attention to the additional barriers Australians with intellectual disability were facing during COVID-19.
We helped IA raise awareness via the media - particularly in Perth where an Australian Disability Enterprise (supported workplace) was continuing to operate despite a case of coronavirus, We also generated nationwide media with the ABC.
Upstride also created an operational social media plan to assist IA during the crisis and beyond.
