With funding from the NDIS Information, Linkages & Capacity Building Program, DARE Disability Support has engaged Dr Annie Brennan to research the experiences of people with ‘invisible’ disabilities, like intellectual disability and autism (and their family and support workers), and local businesses. The objective is to enable people with disability to feel welcome at as many businesses as possible.
