Programs

Crossing the Bridge is a program delivered in the Adelaide community for African women with disabilities, African mothers of children with disabilities, wives and female relatives of African men with disabilities and for African children with disabilities.

Crossing the Bridge provides an environment for African women with disabilities, African mothers of children with disabilities, wives and female relatives of African men with disabilities and African children with disabilities to come together to share their experiences, to encourage and to support one other, to network and to address challenges/barriers they face in South Australia when accessing mainstream services.

The program also aims to empower women with disabilities to have a voice in their community and to encourage and prepare them for leadership roles in the wider community.
