Advocacy for Inclusion approaches advocacy in a unique way where individual advocacy can be supported by giving people the opportunity to learn and practise self-advocacy skills.
This is the first time this has been attempted in Australia by anyone working in disability advocacy and is based on significant experience and expertise developed by
Advocacy for Inclusion in the areas of individual advocacy, and self-advocacy skill building and support. In other sectors, the model might be referred to as “holistic case management”.
All new intakes are assigned both an individual advocate and a self-advocacy trainer to achieving their required/desired outcomes in a more effective, and possibly, more efficient way.
The two approaches have traditionally been quite separate, and this model will meld them together to wrap around the person with a disability.
