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