Developmental Disability WA

DDWA is committed to empowering people with developmental and intellectual disability and neurodiversity and advocating for their rights. The organisation provides support for people with disability, their families, carers, and supporters, while advocating for their rights through systemic advocacy with organisations, government bodies, and disability professionals.

The Friendship Project is all about making friends and keeping them. It was made by DDWA, who worked with a group of people with intellectual disability. We made videos about friendships from people's ideas. One video in the series is titled, "Why trust is important."

If you want to make friends and learn more about friendship, here is a great place to start!

In the video, we talk about how important trust is for friendships. Trust means doing what you say you'll do. Making friends takes time, and trusting someone might feel scary at first. We mention signs that show you can trust someone, like them listening and supporting you, being honest, respectful, and caring. The video also suggests questions to ask yourself about your friend, such as if they help you when you need them and if you feel good when you're together.
