Disability Rights Advocacy Service is part of the national network of disability advocacy organisations funded by the Australian Government.
INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY BUILDING
The role of the ICB Program is to support and develop the self-advocacy skills and knowledge of people with disability. We do this through working with people with disabilities, their families and carers who support them, by focusing on developing self-advocacy skills and how they can pass that knowledge /skills to others or use it to help others advocate for their rights.
We also work with key stakeholder agencies and organisations that support people with disability to develop self-advocacy and empower them to use that knowledge to assist others with disability. The goal being to create community capacity in the disability and disability support communities and to educate within the community through advocating for equality and rights.
Through DRAS social media platforms, the provision of workshops, information sessions, and Outreach Clinics, resources will be provided to enable and encourage people with disability, their families and carers to self-advocate and promote self- advocacy.
This program is being delivered through Outreach Clinics in the Limestone Coast and in the Riverland and through face to face engagement with community groups and stakeholders in those areas and the greater metropolitan Adelaide.
