Creating a voice for
the Disability Sector

From our directors

At Developing Australian Communities we believe in working closely with NDIS service providers, carers and participants to not only provide a voice for the disability sector but to help Australia become a world leader in disability services through our events and the distribution of information, news and advice.

Mike Clark

Mike Clark

Co-Founder/Director

We aim to achieve much-needed change and connections in our sector by increasing professional standards and bringing people together to talk about the most pressing issues in our sector so together we can find solutions. One of the many ways we work on achieving this is by our successful participant and provider Disability Connection Expos in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth, and by providing a consistent flow of quality information, reform and innovation that focuses on solutions from the sector itself.

Let's stay connected and we'd love to hear from you if you have solutions to sector challenges.
