The Inclusive Research Network are looking for new members

Do you have intellectual disability and want to be included in projects that improve the lives of people with intellectual disability?

Join the Inclusive Research Network at CDS.

The Inclusive Research Network at CDS is a group of people with and without intellectual disability who do research together.

That means that people with intellectual disability work together with people without intellectual disability on topics they find important and that affect them in their lives.

For us, doing research means choosing topics that are important in the lives of people with intellectual disability.

Then we talk with people in interviews or send them questionnaires to find out information about the topics. We work on things like: 


– Disability rights

– Advocacy

– Inclusion

– Disability services

– Health and more

We also share our work with other people by presenting at conferences in Australia and overseas. This way other people find out about our work and we can learn from each other.

Another way of sharing what we do is by writing articles about our work and publishing them.

Being an Inclusive Research Network member means coming to meetings at least once a month.

At our meetings we talk about the topics we work on, have discussions, listen to each other, socialise and have fun. It is a great way to meet new people and make new friends.

We are looking for new members who think it is important that people with intellectual disability are included everywhere.

On 24 March 2022 we will have a workshop. We will talk about research and the projects we work on. This way you can get more information and decide if you want to join the Inclusive Research Network.

The workshop will be at 10am at the University of Sydney.
