Funded by the Department of Social Services and co-ordinated by the CMTO, Audio Ability is a project that will mentor, train and assign work placement for people living with disability in community media and creative industries across Australia.
Audio Ability aims to ensure people with disability, who may face barriers including physical, and language, learning needs in traditional learning environments, can access learning opportunities, develop creative and workplace skills and have the opportunity to practice their skills by doing activities in a real-world environment.
In the spirit of ‘nothing about us without us’, Audio Ability has been developed in consultation with reference groups consisting of community radio station volunteers living with disability, training co-ordinators, station managers and other representatives. These groups’ invaluable input helps shape Audio Ability, and continues to do so.
