About Speak Out

Welcome to Speak Out

The Speak Out Association of Tasmania, also known as Speak Out,
is a state-wide membership organisation for people with intellectual/cognitive disability.

We aim to develop a respectful and inclusive community for people living with a disability.

We do this by promoting and defending the individual rights of  people with intellectual disability.

Through our advocacy work and our good governance, we are able to build the capacity of our membership communities.

Our history

Initially established in 1982 to promote self advocacy through the annual conference,
Speak Out commenced delivery of advocacy services in 1989.

Speak Out is also a membership organisation for people with intellectual/cognitive disability.
Self-Advocacy groups meet each month in Hobart, Launceston and Burnie.
We also have peer support groups across the state.

Our aim

To develop a respectful and inclusive community by
promoting and defending the rights of people with disability.

We achieve this through our advocacy work; good governance that includes people with
intellectual disability; and building the capacity of communities.

Speak Out provides individual advocacy and supports 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.
