Friends of NWDS

‘Recipients of the title Friend of NWDS are acknowledged for their contribution and ongoing commitment to the development of quality outcomes for people with disabilities and the NWDS Community. ‘Friends’ champion NWDS within the community and help establish links to other organisations and community members who will be able to provide assistance to NWDS in improving the lives of people with a disability. This assistance may be in many forms; providing services, advertising our services, suggestions for improvements, linkages for people power for special events, intellectual advice on systems, networking, brokering deals, highlighting people with disabilities in campaigns, sponsoring equipment purchases or events or any other individual skills that can be used to develop quality outcomes for people with a disability and those that assist them in their endeavors.

Friends of NWDS are the linkage keys and external drivers that create connections, initiate innovations and build the support structures that people with disabilities so deservedly need.’
