Seeking carers and people living with disability to help co-design healthcare services

Text: Alfred Health Speak better health together

The SPEAK Project aims to improve healthcare for people with disability. The project focuses on autistic people, people with intellectual disability, and people with communication support needs.

The project is an initiative of Alfred Health and aims to ensure people with disabililities and their carers feel safe, understood and supported while in hospital.

They are therefore seeking people who have first-hand knowledge of disability and accessing healthcare to co-design their services.

In particular, they are seeking carers of people with intellectual disabilities, those with communication support needs and carers of autistic/neuro-diverse person to join their co-design group.
