Intellectual Disability Rights Service (IDRS)
The Intellectual Disability Rights Service (IDRS) is a disability advocacy service and community legal centre for people with intellectual disability. We are a statewide service in NSW with offices in Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong. We work with and for people with intellectual disability to advance and promote their rights in practice.
IDRS provides legal advice, casework and advocacy; support persons to attend police stations, court and other legal processes and advocacy for people with intellectual disability involved in criminal justice matters and for parents with intellectual disability at risk of losing their children. We also advocate for improvements to law and policies affecting people with intellectual disability.
IDRS delivers a range of education and training programs including rights and self-advocacy development with people with intellectual disability. We also produce rights resources for people with disability.
