The Australian Federation of Disability Organisations (AFDO) is a Disabled People’s Organisation (DPO). We are a cross-disability representative organisation, and the national voice representing people with disability in Australia.

We are currently supporting a research initiative by My Care Space, a national disability platform that connects people living with a disability, their families and carers with providers, services and vital information that enables them to live full and independent lives.


AFDO is seeking expressions of interest from people with disability who would like to be a part of a focus group. The focus group aims to develop a broader understanding of what people with disabilities want when looking for a service provider – how they choose providers – or how they wish they could choose providers.

We respect your right to privacy and as such all information will be de-identified.


Remuneration will be $60.00 per hour (inc GST) deposited onto a debit card (EFTPOS card), which will be posted after delivery of services. The sessions are anticipated to run for 90 minutes with a short break included.


Selection criteria are as follows.

  • Person with disability
  • Experience accessing or employing disability service providers
  • Availability in late October and/or early November


The project will cover accessibility requirements for participants, including support people.


If you are interested in being a part of this focus group, we encourage you to register your interest by sending an email to at the Australian Federation of Disability Organisations and include a brief background along with your contact details.

Expressions of Interest close 26th October 2020.
