Reinforce is a self-advocacy organisation for people with an intellectual disability. We are self advocates who speak up for the rights of people with intellectual disability!
Here are some things we do..
- We speak up and share our lived experiences and stories. We share our stories to help make the world a better place. We speak at conferences, schools and universities!
- We run training about self-advocacy and human rights
- We do research and create Easy Read information for people with intellectual disability. We give a lot of advice to Government and disability services. We also sit on boards and advisory groups!
- We have fun! We have lots of social events and meet-ups for members!
Who runs Reinforce?
Reinforce is run by members! This means we are run by people with intellectual disability.
We have a Committee of Management that makes all the big decisions. Every person on the Committee of Management is an experienced self-advocate with intellectual disability.
We have an election every year at the Annual General Meeting. This is where we elect our Committee of Management. Have a look below at our Committee of Management!
