The Towards Inclusive Practice project is about providing expertise and advice to help make Government more inclusive for people with an intellectual disability.
Most Government systems and processes are not easy to navigate. This is especially so for people with an intellectual disability. People with an intellectual disability also have very few ways to tell Government what matters.
The Department of Social Services funded the Towards Inclusive Practice project to provided practical advice to Government on how to be more inclusive of people with an intellectual disability.
A national network of people with an intellectual disability worked on the project as Inclusion Advisors to discuss and provide advice on issues and develop resources for Government on inclusive practice.
What we have done
In partnership with our state and territory member organisations, we:
- Set up consultation groups of people with intellectual disability in each State and Territory
- Provided training, support and resources for the groups to meet regularly
- Co-designed resources about the best ways to include to people with intellectual disability and hear their voice
- Helped build the advocacy skills of people with intellectual disability around Australia.
