About our organisation

Speak Out is a state-wide advocacy service that has members with intellectual disability.

We aim to develop a respectful and inclusive community for people living with a disability. We do this by promoting and defending rights through our advocacy work, good governance that includes people with intellectual disability; and building the capacity of communities. 

Our history

Initially established in 1982 to promote self advocacy through the annual conference, Speak Out commenced delivery of advocacy services in 1989.

Speak Out is also a membership organisation for people with intellectual/cognitive disability. Self-Advocacy groups and Peer Support groups meet each month.

Our aim

To develop a respectful and inclusive community by promoting and defending the rights of people with disability.

We achieve this through our advocacy work; good governance that includes people with intellectual disability; and building the capacity of communities.
