Access disability advocacy supports
The Queensland Disability Advocacy Program funds organisations to deliver advocacy services to Queenslanders with disability, their family members and carers.
The advocacy services help and support people with disability:
- to understand their rights
- to navigate the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and other mainstream services
- to address gaps in support
- to address discrimination, conflict and unfair treatment
- to make informed decisions
- to build capacity to advocate for themselves
- ensure fundamental needs are met
- through legal matters
- with information and referrals to disability support services.
The disability advocacy services are located statewide and include specialist advocacy services for:
- children and young people
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and
- People from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
