About us

Inclusion Australia is the national peak body for intellectual disability.  

We are the trusted and authentic national voice for people with an intellectual disability and their families. 

Previously called the National Council on Intellectual Disability (NCID) we have been advocating for the rights of people with an intellectual disability since our formation in 1954.  

We provide expertise and advice to Federal Government and other organisations to drive systemic change in Australia.  

How we work 

We work closely with people with an intellectual disability and families through the Our Voice committee and our state member organisations

Together, we use our collective expertise to advocate for greater inclusion of people with an intellectual disability in all levels of Australian society.  

We are also a member of Inclusion International. Through our work and our members, we are part of a global community that is making the world more inclusive for people with intellectual disabilities and their families.
