Motivation Australia programmes aim to improve opportunities by positively impacting on disabled people's physical, social and economic situation to enable their full participation in society. We work in partnership with a range of organisations - from grassroots disability groups to national governments and international institutions - to ensure that local people and organisations have the skills to meet the needs of disabled people in their communities and to affect positive lasting change.
We value the operational freedom which stems from being independent of any religious or political affiliation. We promote equitable opportunities for all regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, age, religion, location or politics.
A major focus of our work is the appropriate provision of wheeled mobility. Our vision is of a world that promotes everyone's right to mobility and inclusion. We believe mobility is an essential human right that enables people to achieve inclusion in all aspects of life. Our guiding principles are:
- Partnerships and key people;
- Cost effective and sutainable solutions;
- An inclusive development approach.
