Governance recommendation: who should run the NDRP and how?

This outlines our recommendations for who should run the NDRP, how and why – known as our governance approach. It is designed to reflect the NDRP Principles and includes recommendations on corporate structure, membership, the Board, Board committees and intellectual property. It should be read together with the Learnings and Recommendations report.

Preliminary research agenda

The NDRP research agenda is being developed to guide the allocation of research funding by the NDRP over a ten-year time period.​ it will outline the priority topics and themes that are important to the disability community. Once complete, the NDRP research agenda will be the foundation for the NDRP to deliver on its vision. We have developed this preliminary research agenda to help inform the final agenda. It draws on findings from a three-phase agenda-setting research project.
