CID speaks up on the big issues to ensure people with disability have the same rights as everyone else. We work with Government and the community to create change at all levels and support people with intellectual disability to voice their rights and concerns.
Many of our Members are part of our Speak Out Reach Out group, where they discuss the big issues and what matters to them.
CID runs an information service so that people with intellectual disability, their family and friends, or anyone else can ask questions or find out information. Call 1800 424 065.
We also have a number of resources such as info sheets, which can help you stay up to date with important information.
We offer a complete range of services to equip organisations to become industry leaders in accessible and inclusive practice. We bring together the expertise of people with intellectual disability with our skilled trainers, designers, consultants and easy read experts. We work with business, Government and community organisations.
We offer the following services individually or in combination as part of a package.
Get More Skills Workshops
We work with people with disability and their families to live life their way and get the most out of the changing disability system. Our goal is to help people learn and practice new ways of doing things and develop and grow skills.The workshops talk about the NDIS and we provide practical activities to help people think about choice, voice and control in their lives, or the lives of people they support.
Please contact us if you would like a Get More Skills workshop in your community.
My Learning Matters classes
My Learning Matters is an e-learning tool and we run face to face classes to help get you started! My Learning Matters helps you prepare for the NDIS and to get the most out of life, covering things like choosing a service provider, speaking up, and managing a budget. During the class we'll go through the sign in process and some of the modules. You'll then be confident to finish the course at home.
Become A Leader is face-to-face training that will let you learn how to be a leader in your own life and in the community. The topics are: I am a leader, asking for what I want, working with others, and making change.
We run a number of peer group projects to connect people, build and share skills, and create community.
We attend community events, making sure our advocacy message and our resources and information get out into the community. We work with culturally and linguistically diverse communities to make sure no one misses out!
