UN Convention on Rights of Persons with Disabilities
Australia is a party to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
Australia has to report to the United Nations every four years about what it has achieved.
People with disability, through their representative organisations can also report to the United Nations. This report is known as a Civil Society Shadow Report.
The B-HART accreditation package has three components. All three components have been developed in consultation and collaboration with people with lived experience, interested providers and experienced sector development practitioners.
