Women with Disabilities Victoria (WDV) are losing 48% of our funding resulting in a loss of 36% of our staff, this includes 19 women and non-binary people with disabilities.
We are calling on the Commonwealth Government to urgently address the funding of WDV who without this support will be unable to continue our critical work after June 2024.

WDV CEO Nadia Mattiazzo has stated “I am devastated…speaking personally, and I think also from the rest of us at WDV, we will not let our rage at this situation abate. We will respond to this outrageous lack of understanding for who we are and what we do best.”
Here is how you can help, call on Minister Rishworth and Minister Shorten to urgently address this funding shortfall.
Email the Ministers using the pre-prepared letter here.
