About the Organisation
Communication Rights Australia is a leading government-funded human rights advocacy and information company limited by guarantee and a registered charity.
Our mission is to strive for a world free of discrimination for the people we represent – people who have communication or speech difficulties and are disenfranchised.
Communication Rights works in partnership representing a range of people on a continuum from severe speech and communication difficulties, such as Autism, acquired brain injury, illness – for example Motor Neurone Disease, stroke, mental health, physical and sensory impairment or intellectual disability, through to children whose capacity to communicate impacts on correctly and consistently sending their message (for example through Apraxia). The criterion for access is if the person’s ability to communicate his/her message is impacting on their ability to access their rights.
