Speak My Language Program
Speak My Language (SML) is a partnership program by the Ethnic Communities Council of WA and Ethnic Communities Council of NSW that involves CALD and Indigenous Australians with disabilities, and their supporters, sharing real stories and experiences via podcast, broadcast, and online. The initiative will be delivered across Australia in 2021, 2022. SML is funded by the Department of Social Services (DSS) as part of the NDIS Information Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) and is led by the Ethnic Communities Council
The stories will be made available in 25 languages about living well with a disability, and they will inform people about skills and resources available in the community to support people to live well.

We are seeking expressions of interest for "Travellers" to tell their story. Travellers are bilingual people from culturally, ethnically and linguistically diverse backgrounds who have experienced cultural challenges to people with a disability. They need to have experience with doing podcasts, radio broadcasts and have connections with their community.
