The Australian College of Community and Disability Practitioners (ACCDP) is your professional voice in the community and disability services sector.

Membership of the ACCDP is an exclusive benefit of being an ASU member.

Being a member of the ACCDP means that you have a say in your own professional development and in the professional standards in our sector. Our sector needs a professional voice from front-line workers not big business, employer or industry groups.

The ACCDP has an Advisory Board that guides its work. The Board includes frontline practitioners, academics and service providers – all committed to uplifting the sector and supporting workers to develop new skills and careers in the sector. The ACCDP has representatives on important industry training bodies.

Your ACCDP membership means you have a voice at the table when important decisions are being made about workforce development.

Being a member of the ACCDP also means that you have exclusive access to research, training, and interviews with sector experts – all at no cost to you.
