Disability Projects

For over 30 years we have worked alongside people with intellectual disability, their support people and representative organisations to promote disability inclusion and advocate for their right to optimal reproductive and sexual health.

Family Planning Australia is constantly working on new and exciting projects to educate, promote and advocate for the rights of people with disability to lead supported and informed sexual lives and have happy and healthy relationships.

Some of our current projects include:

Outing Disability

Outing Disability: A photographic journey

Lesbian, gay, transgender, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) people with disability are often excluded from both disability and LGBTIQ communities. They can face multiple discriminations that can inhibit their experience of sexuality, sex and gender as positive aspects of their lives. Outing Disability encourages you to reflect on your attitudes and assumptions about the sexuality, sex and gender of people and disability.

Just Checking

Just Checking

The Just Checking project provides training, information and easy English resources to promote the importance of health screening tests for people with disability. Cervical, breast and bowel screening is important for all people, but we know that people with intellectual disability are not screened as often as they should be.

Just Checking is a project funded by Cancer Institute NSW to help address this health inequality.
