Brisbane Hot Topics

Brisbane Hot Topics is a group run by and for people with intellectual disability. Everyone with an intellectual disability is welcome to join our group.

If you join our group you get to:

  • Have your own voice
  • Learn about things important to us
  • Help others to speak up

Each year we decide and plan the topics we will talk about. Each month we have a different Hot Topic we talk about.

Some topics we have spoken about include:

  • National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
  • Housing
  • Transport
  • Health
  • Safety
  • Human Rights
  • Relationships
