About Dale

My name is Dale Reardon. I want to create a website for the disabled, by the disabled, serving the needs of the disabled.

My vision is to create a membership website covering news, thoughts and opinion on disability issues, with a focus on Australian news and opinion.

I am blind, and currently using my fourth seeing eye dog, Charlie. I lost my sight in the final year of school and went on to attend the University of Tasmania (Hobart) the following year and obtained a Law Degree with First Class Honors.

I have practised as a lawyer in Tasmania, Western Australia and Victoria. I have owned small businesses, created online businesses and worked for small organisations and also worked in the public service.

I bring a wide range of lived disability experiences to this venture and will use my business and disability experience to build it into an exciting community where we can all learn and benefit.

The Plan

My Disability Matters is an idea.

My vision is to create a membership website covering news, thoughts and opinion on disability issues, with a focus on Australian news and opinion.

The first step is to get the idea out there and ask for your input. There is no point developing something that doesn’t address what people need.

The About page goes into detail of the initial planning for this website – the ideas I have and how I see the website developing. Please have a read through and think about what you want to see.

I would also love for you to participate in the development of this website by completing a short survey to tell me what you want and need.
