Advocacy for Inclusion provides independent individual, self and systemic advocacy for people with disabilities.

Advocacy for Inclusion is a Disabled Peoples Organisation which means our board, members and staff are a majority of people with disabilities.

We represent Canberra’s most marginalised and isolated people with disabilities, those with cognitive disabilities and/or significant communication barriers.

We work within a human rights framework and acknowledge the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Advocacy for Inclusion is signed onto the ACT Human Rights Act.

ACT Budget 2017 – Recognising Marginalisation


Advocacy for Inclusion is attending the ACT Budget lock up on 6 June 2017. We will be looking for a response to the recommendations made in our Submission to ACT Budget Consultation 2017-18 in which we call on the ACT Government to “Recognise that specialist disability responses to justice processes would reduce marginalisation and inequality for people with disabilities in the ACT.”

In addition to addressing justice responses, we are also looking for commitments by the ACT Government in the areas of representation, violence, parenting, guardianship, accommodation and the implementation of the National Disability Strategy 2010-2020 to improve the lives of Canberrans with disabilities.

A full analysis of the Budget will be posted on our website:

Now is the time to continue human rights based social reforms for better inclusion of people with disabilities in all facets of the community.

Follow us on Twitter @Adv4Inclusion and our website for further comment.
