Ian Cummins AM has dedicated his life to being a voice for those with intellectual disability, and to encouraging people to speak up for themselves. This was acknowledged with Ian being awarded an Order of Australia Medal for services to people with disability.
Ian was a founding member of Our Voice and has been the Chairman since 2007. He is also a Board member for a number of committees, and he contributes to advisory roles and disability advocacy roles. Ian is not paid for these roles, nor does he want to be. Ian says, ” I don’t do it for the money, my ambition is to help more people with disabilities. I do a lot of work for the community and speak up for those with learning disabilities, and help them open up.”
HomePlace congratulates Ian on his award and for the tireless work he does in helping people living with a disability.
