DHS Disability Champions


This is an article and links to a range of videos about the Department of Human Services (DHS) ‘Disability Champions’.  Eleven people who have a disability or an illness are listed as ‘champions’ to highlight how they have “overcome their disability and illness to successfully find work, study, train or volunteer in their communities”.

The words used in this piece are ‘amazing’, ‘champions’, ‘overcome’ and ‘inspiring stories’.  The target audience of this website is people who have a disability, their families and professionals. Whilst this is only one page on the DHS website it does give the view that ‘overcoming’ disability is the desired outcome.
