Disability Club Pty Ltd

Disability Club is an inclusive social media platform that strives to create an accessible environment for people of all backgrounds and capabilities to connect. This platform is a great alternative to major social media networks such as Facebook, Instagram and X, and aims to be a welcoming space for everyone, but particularly for people living with disabilities who may feel excluded from other social platforms.

Nathan Johnston - Disability Club CEO

Nathan Johnston

Founder and CEO

Nathan Johnston was born with cerebral palsy and created Disability Club to bridge the gap that people with a disability feel on a daily basis.  Nathan’s initial motivation was sparked by the increased isolation of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“During lockdown, I felt isolated and I wanted to connect with likeminded people like myself. And I thought, if there are more people out there like me, they must also feel isolated during COVID-19.”

Nathan built the first version of Disability Club on his own after learning web development and social media marketing through online courses. For a person who can’t read or write, this was a huge challenge from the outset, but for Nathan his ambitious goals have always pushed him to overcome any challenges life throws at him.

“With mainstream media, people with disability sometimes have problems navigating it. Mainstream media doesn’t work well with assistive technologies like reading programs. I wanted a way to make it more accessible.”

Nathan Johnston lives in rural NSW and now works full time on Disability Club from home, tirelessly focused on his goal of creating the most inclusive and accessible social network out there.
