DRAS is a community organisation that is run by our members and our Board, which is made up of people with a disability. We are part of the national network of disability advocacy organisations funded by the Australian Government through the Department of Social Services.
Our individual advocacy program represents people on a one-to-one basis to resolve their individual concerns.
Our advocates will work with a person who has a disability, their family, guardian and/or significant associate in a way that supports their wishes in resolving issues.
