Richard Llewellyn acquired severe disability when he was 20 years old. He approached this new way of life as an adventure, beginning a series of small businesses, including running Llewellyn Galleries, in Dulwich and North Adelaide, which promoted local artists.
In the late 1970s, he formed a self-help group of people with disability in Adelaide and went on to serve on many national and State bodies, advocating for new policies, infrastructure and services to improve people’s lives. He was the Disability Adviser to the Premier of South Australia for seven years and later worked as a disability access consultant.
Richard had a passion for South Australia, the arts and people with disability. The Richard Llewellyn Deaf and Disability Grants continue to support the values for which he worked and lived.
