Speak Up Alexandra

Speak Up Alexandra is a self-advocacy group run by members of the community with complex communication issues and/or intellectual disability. We advocate not only for the needs of ourselves, but we also advocate for the needs of others with all types of disabilities in our community.

Our Projects

  • White Night
  • Dangerous Deeds
  • Access for All community members (Ramps)
  • Making a DVD about Speak Up Alexandra
  • Speaking at events about the rights of people with a disability and the importance of self-advocacy
  • Organising and holding discussions with businesses and politicians regarding important issues to those with a disability in the community

Self-Advocacy Matters because

  • It’s important to have a voice within your community, regardless of having a disability
  • You should be able to live your best, most fullest life
  • You can advocate for everyone, as well as yourself
  • We want people to recognise our ability not our disability
  • We can be seen as people first


“Alexandra now has a new self-advocacy group for disabled people in our community called Speak up Alexandra.”

“Have you considered the challenges those with a disability face in our community?”

“Not all of our local shops are accessible or footpaths in good repair. Change can happen but it must involve everyone.”
