A Voice for People with Disabilities

‘A Voice for People with Disabilities’ is a campaign aimed at giving people with disabilities a voice again following the closure of ABC’s Ramp Up. It was announced in the Federal government budget that funding for ABC’s disability news and opinion website, Ramp Up, was discontinued. Sadly, the ABC decided not to incorporate Ramp Up into their core operations. Therefore, Australia’s only legitimate media outlet for the Voices of people with disabilities has been axed.

This project will take action to give people with disabilities a voice again by creating a news and opinion website that will continue the important work of Ramp Up. It will also create employment opportunities for people with disabilities by paying for content and engaging people with disabilities in editorial and marketing roles.
