On 30 March 2012 the First Peoples Disability Network Australia (FPDN) was launched in Sydney by The Hon. Senator Jan McLucas, Parliamentary Secretary for Disability & Carers.
FPDN is the new national peak organisation representing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders with disability in Australia, and their families and carers. FPDN membership is made up of existing state networks of Aboriginal and Torres Strait people living in NSW, Queensland, Victoria and South Australia, and will be looking to include other networks in Western Australia, the Northern Territory and Tasmania as full members in the future.
