About us

About us

 

Inclusion Australia (NCID) is the national peak body for intellectual disability. We focus on issues that affect the lives of people with intellectual disability and their families.

 

We work as a “federated model”. This means we have state member organisations all over Australia. We bring people together through these organisations to support and advocate for people with intellectual disability.

 

Our mission

 

Our mission is to make the Australian community one where people with intellectual disability have the same opportunities as people without disability.

 

We get policy advice from the Our Voice Committee (“Our Voice”). Our Voice is an official committee of the Inclusion Australia (NCID) Board.

Our history

 

Inclusion Australia (NCID) used to be known as the National Council on Intellectual Disability (NCID). It was created in 1951 by parents and friends of people with intellectual disability to:

 

  • Improve the quality of life of people with intellectual disability

 

  • Bring together organisations. These organisations shared helpful information and resources for people with intellectual disability and their families.
