Thank you for being a part of the Council for Intellectual Disability community. It was a very busy year. Below you can read about some of the things we did in 2018.
We look forward to more great achievements in 2019 thanks to the energy and hard work of all our supporters.
Our Advocacy Group says thank you for your support!
We campaigned to get funding for our advocacy work.
We worked together with other disability groups to make this happen.
Thank you for supporting our campaigns!
We made the My Health Matters folder.
The folder helps people with disability communicate with doctors and health workers.
The folders were so popular we had to print more.
We made a video about how communities can include people with disability.
You can watch the video now. Click the button on the image.
We worked with other organisations on Team Up.
Team Up is for disability peer groups.
Peers support each other and solve problems together.
Our Board Member Robert Strike went to the United Nations to talk about how to include people with disability.
Robert said “I wanted people to come and learn how to make things better for people with intellectual disabilities – and they did.”
We made videos about 9 people with intellectual disability who work.
The 9 videos show the strengths and contributions that people with disability can bring to their workplace.
Our staff members Ella and Alanna were featured by the ABC for International Women’s Day.
Ella and Alanna shared their message about inclusion, equality and employment.
They also made a ‘girl power’ video!
Our hard-working advocate Anthony Mulholland received the Disability Leadership Institute Change Makers Award 2018.
We made a video about Mia Anderson.
Mia is a young Aboriginal woman who lives in Dubbo.
She does not let her intellectual disability stop her doing what she loves to do, like playing footy.
On Global Day of Parents we made a video about Charitha, who loves his mum and dad very much.
The video celebrates all parents, and the love and support they give their children.
