Our Mission

Our Mission Advocacy WA assists and supports people with disabilities to achieve social and individual change, empowerment, justice and human rights.

Advocacy WA acknowledges

The Noongar and/or Wardandi people who are the Traditional Custodians of this Land.

We pay our respect to the Elders both past, present and future for they hold the memories and traditions of this land and extend that respect to all.

What does advocacy mean?

Advocacy means ‘standing by’ or ‘speaking out’ for someone’s rights when they are treated unfairly.

Advocacy WA believes that people with a disability have the same rights (and responsibilities) as people who do not have a disability.

We will advocate with and for people with a disability to safeguard (or protect) their capacity to speak out and ensure that their rights are negotiated in practice.

What does it cost?

It is a FREE service.

Who can get help?

Anyone with a disability can access this independent service. We take referrals from other agencies as well as self-referral.

Where does AWA cover?

If you live in the South West we can help. We are based out of our main office in Bunbury but we also have outreach offices in Collie, Manjimup, Margaret River and Busselton. We are able to schedule appointments in other South West locations if required.
