The National Platform of Self Advocates is an independent self-advocacy organisation. It was set up to make sure that the voices of people with intellectual disability are heard.
We are inviting out-going TDs and Ministers and candidates for the forthcoming election to a discussion forum with the National Platform of Self-Advocates and members of disability services in the Dublin region.
