An imperative part of the work of CYDA is to raise awareness of issues impacting on children and young people with disability and their families. It is not possible to achieve effective policy and practice for children and young people with disability unless governments and the community are informed of lived experiences of disability. 

In addition to submissions, CYDA undertakes a wide range of representations to government and non-government organisations across a range of issues. Below are links to CYDA representations.
