Morwell group

Listen to this page

New Wave Morwell is a self advocacy group for people with intellectual disability and acquired brain injuries, run by people with intellectual disability and acquired brain injuries.

New Wave Morwell started in 2009 as a way to give people with disabilities a voice in their lives, to learn and know their rights, make their own choices and learn how to advocate for themselves and others in their community in a fun and accessible way.

Morwell group

I joined New Wave Advocacy because it helps people with disabilities have the same rights and choices as anyone else in the community.

David Walker

An example of New Waves Morwell advocacy in the community includes:

  • Lobbying road crossing on Commercial Road
  • Speaking to V-line about accessibility on public transport
  • Chatting with local councils and political representatives on issues the disability community face.
