ECCV is currently looking for people with disability and guest speakers who speak Maltese, Somali and Oromo to be interviewed for the Speak My Language program.

Speak My Language is producing a series of podcasts, radio broadcasts and online content in more than 25 community languages that will feature CALD and Indigenous Australians sharing real stories, experiences, tips and information about resources and activities that support living well with a disability.

ECCV will be interviewing CALD and Indigenous people with disabilities and their supporters, including family, friends and service providers.

Share your Story

Speak My Language uses the power of storytelling to share what it means to live well with a disability. We believe that the personal stories of people with disabilities builds individual and community capacity. Sharing stories improves understanding and knowledge and improves opportunities for choice and control. Tell us your story!

Share your expertise

As a guest speaker, you can share your knowledge and insights about the opportunities and resources that can help people with disability live well in the community and empower others to make informed choices.

Guest speakers provide information from their field of expertise to create connections between people with disability, their supporters (family, friends, service providers) and the communities where they live.
