What we do

What we do

Inclusion Australia brings together groups across Australia who are connected with people with intellectual disability and their families. We believe it is important that these groups share the vision of inclusion in all parts of Australian life.

 

Systemic Advocacy

We provide inclusive and holistic policy expertise and advice to government departments and other organisations to drive systemic change in Australia. This means we talk to the government and try to make positive change happen for and with people with intellectual disability and their families.

We get advice from as many people as possible before we talk to the government. That way, we get a better understanding of what people need and want.

 

Projects

We run projects that are designed to make the lives of people with intellectual disability and their families better.

We have received Information, Linkages and Capacity (ILC) funding for past and present projects to support the vision of inclusion in all parts of Australian life for people with intellectual disability and their families.

This means the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) has given us money to do work that supports people with intellectual disability and their families.

 

State members

Inclusion Australia has state member organisations all over Australia. To learn more about what these organisations do, read State Agencies.

Our state members advocate for people with intellectual disability to work, get an education and be involved in their communities in the same way as anybody else in Australia.

They share what they know with each other. This is so people with intellectual disability and their families benefit, and so people with intellectual disabilities can become self-advocates if they want to.
