Inclusion Australia, previously the National Council on Intellectual Disability (NCID), is the national voice for Australians with intellectual disability.
We bring together groups across Australia who are connected to people with intellectual disability and who share the vision of inclusion in all parts of Australian life.
Our strength comes from our diverse state members who use their combined experience and expertise to increase the inclusion of people with intellectual disability in all levels of the community. They do this through advocacy across local, state and national governments as well as international agencies, such as the United Nations.
We also provide inclusive and holistic policy expertise and advice to government departments and other organisations to drive systemic change in Australia. To develop this advice, we collaborate with people with intellectual disabilities and our local networks, including families, service providers and advocacy groups.
Our state members share their extensive resources, information and knowledge across state lines so that all people with intellectual disability in Australia can benefit directly and advocate for themselves.
We are a member of Inclusion International, the international network that represents people with intellectual disabilities and their families.
