ATSIDNQ is a network of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with a disability. It was established to raise awareness of the cultural and social needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with a disability, their families and carers.
The Network also provides a voice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the transition to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

The importance of having such a network had been discussed for some time and the impetus to begin work on establishing this vision resulted from a gathering of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who came together in December 2005 as part of the International Day of People with Disability.
From humble beginnings the network has evolved and was recently supported by Queenslanders with Disability Network (QDN). QDN has now engaged QADA (Queensland Aged and Disability Advocacy) to support the continued growth of ATSIDNQ and its members.
QADA has over 20 years experience in community services and many years supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities.
Queenslanders with Disability Network (QDN) is an organisation of people with disability for people with disability.
We encourage and support ways for you to have a say – and be heard.
We aim to connect you with information about the things that matter to you, and support you coming together with others, through our network of members.
