About the NDRP
The National Disability Research Partnership (NDRP) will facilitate collaborative and inclusive disability research, so we have better policy and practice for people with disability in Australia.
It will do this by:
funding research done by and with people with disability
implementing the NDRP research agenda
strengthening disability research capacity
making findings accessible to the disability community and policy and decision makers.
The NDRP will be guided by the NDRP principles which have been developed with people with disability and key stakeholders.

Establishing the NDRP
In July 2020 a 2-year establishment phase started. During this phase, a Working Party was put together to help set up the NDRP. This included processes and structures to help the NDRP work effectively.
We asked the disability community to give feedback and advice during this phase.
In December 2021, the Australian Government announced funding of $12.5 million to fully establish the National Disability Research Partnership (NDRP) over 2022-23 to 2024-25.
We are now putting actions in place to move to a new, independent NDRP. We expect the NDRP to be in place early in 2024.
During this transition phase, people with disability and other stakeholders can continue to get involved. Visit our Get Involved page to find out more.
