Join the Empower Us Action Team


Empower Us is putting together a team of self-advocates.

Empower Us gives advice and support

to self-advocates, supporters, families, and organizations

on self-advocacy and inclusion.


They do this by creating and sharing things like:

  • training
  • how-to guides
  • examples of what works well


Empower Us is looking for volunteer self-advocates to join

an international action team.


They are looking for self-advocates who understand

what it is like to be a self-advocacy leader.


They are also looking for self-advocates that are a part of

self-advocacy organizations or networks

that work nationally or internationally.


The action team will use their knowledge, skills and influence

to help Empower Us to develop self-advocacy around the world.

The action team will also help check the work of Empower Us

and make sure it is accessible and inclusive.


As an action team member you will take part in meetings

over skype and give opinions.

You will also help speak for Empower Us

and share the information to people who are interested.


You will also share information about issues for self-advocates

where you live.


On the action team you will also respond to requests for help on self-advocacy.

You will respond to requests from these people:

  • people with an intellectual disability
  • their families
  • the organisations that support them.
