Donation Received for the Wings Away Collection

Today CSU Library welcomed Mark Pattison, Executive Director of the National Council on Intellectual Disability (NCID), to acknowledge the ongoing partnership we have with NCID and the Wings Away Association. Mark presented Anne Loria, Manager Collection Services, with a cheque for the purchase of new material for the Collection.

The Wings Away Collection is the national charity of the Wings Away Association. The Collection is administered by the NCID through its research institute, the Australian Institute on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AIIDD).

The Collection is a substantial collection of literature on disability in Australia having grown to over 5,000 books and journals with an emphasis on early intervention and support for families with young children with disabilities. The Collection provides up to date information on research and support networks in the first instance to families, though it is recognised that this information is invaluable to professionals and students who provide advice and support to parents and their children.

There are Wings Away Associations in each State and Territory where they provide significant support to a variety of charitable organisations.
