Willing and able: a new narrative for disability

Dandelion with elements blowing away

One in five people have some form of disability, according to Australian Network on Disability.

People living with disability experience almost double the unemployment rate of their fellow Australians. And they are often stereotyped either as victims, or as an inspiration.

Annabelle Williams OAM, Legal Counsel of the Australian Olympic Committee, and herself a former Paralympic swimmer shows us there is. Expert comment comes from Gwynnyth Llewellyn of the University of Sydney.

Researched and hosted by: Andrew Maxwell. Produced and written by: Andrea Rivera. Executive Produced by: Lisa Annese. Contributions from: Catherine Petterson and Tracy Hocking. Special thanks to Audiocraft.
