Advocacy
 

Advocacy for people with disability can be defined as speaking, acting or writing with minimal conflict of interest on behalf of the interests of a disadvantaged person or group, in order to promote, protect and defend the welfare of and justice for either the person or group by:

  • Acting in a partisan manner (i.e. being on their side and no one else's);

  • Being primarily concerned with their fundamental needs;

  • Remaining loyal and accountable to them in a way which is empathic and vigorous(whilst respecting the rights of others); and

  • Ensuring duty of care at all times.

Our Individual and Group Advocacy Services are provided by Advocates who stand up for the rights of a person with disability and helps sort out their complaint, issue or problem. Our advocates take direction from the person with disability, keeps their issues and information private and confidential and only releases information with permission from the person.
