Welcome to the Canberra Disability Review (CDR), a platform to highlight and give voice to what matters most to people with disability in the ACT.

Edition 3 - Spring 2022

The Spring 2022 Edition of the Canberra Disability Review is focused on the experience of parents with disability. We talk to Eliza Hull, editor of the fantastic book “We’ve Got This,” about ableism, disability pride, and more. Local Canberran, Cate Barclay shares her experience of the challenges of engaging with health services. Our own Akiko takes a journey into the sometimes far from inclusive world of online resources for parents and Dr Fiona Tito Wheatland sheds light on problems with child protective services and looks at better ways to protect children. It’s a bumper edition of the Canberra Disability Review. Please spread the word and let us know if you have an idea for contribution

Edition 2 - Winter 2022

The Winter 2022 Edition of the Canberra Disability Review has a focus on inclusion in emergency and disaster planning and management. It’s a timely focus given our recent experiences of fires, floods and the ongoing pandemic. In this edition we will explore the impact of the ill-informed “back to normal” narrative related to Covid-19, look into the work of creating a more inclusive approach to disaster planning and management, investigate the impact of banning straws on some people with disability, and hear experiences from the community. We hope you enjoy the issue. 

Edition 1 - Autumn 2022

The Canberra Disability Review is a quarterly online magazine. Its aim is to provide an arena where the insights and wisdom of peoples’ lived experience can be shared, where injustice and disabling social structures and attitudes can be highlighted and challenged, where achievements can be celebrated, and where change-making conversations might begin.
