The Speak My Language (Disability) program has launched its new podcast series sharing stories, advice and resources about living well with a disability within contemporary multicultural Australia.
The podcasts amplify the voices of culturally diverse Australians living with disability from all around the country, and will cover up to 25 languages.
What makes this podcast series special is its focus on living well. The content covers topics such as hobbies, fitness, relationships, employment, travel, transport and housing with more podcasts currently in production. Personal stories, information and advice shared in a conversational and culturally sensitive way empower a positive narrative about living well.
The podcasts also feature guests who promote mainstream, non-disability specific places, activities and opportunities that are inclusive and welcoming of cultural diversity.
Podcasts are currently available in Spanish, Somali, Hindi, Korean and Mandarin, with more podcasts coming soon.
The podcasts can be downloaded for free at https://speakmylanguage.com.au
Speak My Language (Disability) is a national initiative being driven by the Ethnic Communities Council of New South Wales, and delivered in partnership with all State and Territory Ethnic and Multicultural Communities’ Councils and Multicultural Councils across Australia. It is funded by the Commonwealth Department of Social Services.
