About Us

Established in 1991, Advocacy WA (Formally Advocacy South West) is a regionally based community not for profit Western Australian agency that provides information, advocacy and support to people with disabilities or mental health issues who find themselves in vulnerable or marginalised situations living in the South West.

We are publicly funded through the Commonwealth Department of Social Services & the WA Government Disability Services Commission and has the ability to seek funding (grants, sponsorship and donations) from other public and philanthropic sources for discreet projects from time to time.

Advocacy WA advocates for social change and service improvement focusing on, but not limited to, the areas of accommodation, employment and financial security, education and training, transport, and access to specialist health services, so that people with disabilities will be recognised and treated as valued citizens within their community.
