Advocacy for Inclusion provides independent individual, self and systemic advocacy for people with disabilities.

Advocacy for Inclusion is a Disabled Peoples Organisation which means our board, members and staff are a majority of people with disabilities.

We represent Canberra’s most marginalised and isolated people with disabilities, those with cognitive disabilities and/or significant communication barriers.

We work within a human rights framework and acknowledge the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Advocacy for Inclusion is signed onto the ACT Human Rights Act.

Do you identify as a person with a disability? Then Advocacy for Inclusion is here for you.

Contact us if you are being treated unfairly, or you believe you are not being heard. We focus on people who are dealing with legal matters (criminal, civil, tribunal, complaint).

 

Advocacy for Inclusion works in a unique way where individual advocacy is supported by learning self-advocacy skills 

We can only help residents in the ACT. 

 

Once you make contact will we follow an intake process. During intake, ask about the issue you are facing and what you would like an advocate to do to help you.

Each week we consider advocacy requests at an intake meeting where we decide whether or not we can assist you.

If your issue is critical, we will assess the intake straight away. 

If we are not able to assist we will make suggestions about what other options you have and help with referrals. We will keep your information private.
