Get access to the support you’re entitled to

Did you know that the Australian Government funds agencies across Australia to provide people with access to effective disability advocacy that promotes and protects their rights to full community participation?

If you or someone in your care has a disability, this funding means that you are entitled to receive support from one of these agencies free of charge.

The department of Social Services has put together a video to help you understand the role that advocacy can play in your life, the responsibilities of advocacy organisations and how to access advocacy support. You can view the video here, or read more about the National Disability Advocacy Program here.

If you’re interested in issues regarding disability advocacy, we suggest you visit the Disability Advocacy Network Australia website for up to date news and commentary.
