Wagga Wagga Self Advocacy Support Group

About Our Group

Our group is a self-advocacy group operating in a peer-based environment by and for people with an intellectual disability and is supported by RDAS (Regional Disability Advocacy Service).  We work together to be better self-advocates and part of the wider community.

We Want People To Join Our Group Because:

Having a large number of people discussing real issues can lead to positive decisions and systemic change.

Self Advocacy Matters

  • We want to be able to speak up for ourselves
  • We want to make our own decisions and choices
  • We want the community to treat us right
  • We want to be more a part of the community


  • “Once you choose hope, anything’s possible.” Christopher Reeve
  • “The only disability in life is a bad attitude.” Scott Hamilton

Our Most Important Issues

  • Not many opportunities to work in open employment
  • Not enough funding to run the self-advocacy program properly
