About CYDA

Children and Young People with Disability Australia (CYDA) is the national peak body which represents children and young people (aged 0-25) with disability. CYDA is a not for profit, community based organisation that was officially incorporated as a company limited by guarantee in November 2009.

The organisation was initially established in 2002 as the Australian Association for Families of Children with Disability. CYDA receives its core funding under the Department of Social Services (DSS) national secretariat program. 

CYDA has also received project funding from the Department of Social Services to provide information, referral and systemic advocacy regarding the experiences of children with disability in relation to the work of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

CYDA provides a link between the direct experiences of children and young people with disability and their families to federal government and other key stakeholders. This link is essential for the creation of a true appreciation of the experiences of and challenges for children and young people with disability and their families.
