STAR has been a voice for people with intellectual disability, their families and carers for over 50 years. We campaign to change community attitudes, policies and laws that prevent people with intellectual disability from leading the life they choose for themselves.
We’ve run many campaigns over the years, and our current priorities are described below. We write submissions and engage in consultation processes relevant to our work – click here to find our submissions.
We are a reliable source of information and advice on the rights and interests of people with intellectual disability and a track record of effective action. Please contact us if you would like to work with us, seek our advice or test ideas.
