Speak Out Advocacy is a state-wide, independent, non-government organisation that aims to develop a respectful and inclusive community by promoting and defending the rights of people with disability.
We provide individual advocacy and support people with disability to: speak up and be heard, get information, work with the NDIS, know and claim their rights, make decisions, make a complaint; and be represented when needed. These services are free and confidential.
Speak Out is also a membership organisation for people with intellectual disability. Self-Advocacy groups and Peer Support groups meet each month across the state.
The Speak Out Self Advocacy Conference, a conference of national significance, is held annually.
Due to our extensive membership throughout Tasmania, Speak Out is able to provide opportunities to facilitate effective community consultation with people with disability on the issues that affect them.
