Determined to do all he can so that people living with disability can experience simple dreams for a good life

Nathan Basha is a man on a mission, committed to changing the life experiences of people living with disability. Having dedicated a great deal of time, energy and passion to speaking at numerous events across Australia and overseas, Nathan has a clear message; that people with disability should have the same chances for a life of work, friends, family and a place to call home as everyone else.

As a young man with Down Syndrome, Nathan knows how elusive ordinary life experiences can be for people with disability. He is determined to do all he can so that people living with disability can experience simple dreams for a good life.

Besides his motivational speaking engagement to schools, universities, educators, the disability sector, medical professionals and various community organisations, for the past two years Nathan has been engaging with the corporate sector to bring about change in attitudes to employing people with an intellectual disability.

Last year Nathan had a goal of finding five jobs for people with intellectual disability and he successfully achieved this goal. This year Nathan is wanting to achieve 20 jobs. As part of this work to get people jobs, Nathan ran a workshop for people with intellectual disability to inspire them about their dream job and gave skills such as how to write a CV and how to find meaningful employment opportunities.
