We share information, skills and build capacity with people with
intellectual disabilities, their families and support networks.
We advocate for change using evidence-based research, case studies, policy proposals
and presenting the case for change to decision makers, including government,
agencies and service providers.
We share the stories of real people from our individual advocacy to highlight
the barriers that people with intellectual disability experience, and their
successes and contribution to society.
We encourage champions for change to help us change the views of those who don’t
realise that discrimination and exclusion are making our communities weaker.
STAR Victoria is an independent community organisation, based in Victoria, dedicated to working with people who have an intellectual disability and their families. STAR speaks up for their rights, fixes laws that stop them from living fully inclusive lives of their own choosing, and works to change community attitudes towards people with an intellectual disability.
