Act and Speak up for Yourself

Phone: 08 8351 9500

Disability Rights Advocacy Service is part of the national network of disability advocacy organisations funded by the Australian Government.

The Disabled Persons and Families Organisations – Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) project is funded by the National Disability Insurance Agency.

Activities of these programs include:

Disability Advocacy Telephone Helpline

Call us on 8351 9500 or call or text to 0475 751 131

Callers can get advice on simple issues, referrals and advice about how to be a success at advocating for yourself.

Self Advocacy Support and Information Groups

We are working with community-based groups on teaching the things our advocates have learned over time.  We hope that people who come along will take the things they learn and go out and share their knowledge with other people who have a disability. It will be informal over a coffee or juice and something nice to eat. We’ll talk about your rights and anything else you want to discuss - we want you in the driver’s seat! We want you to share what you’ve learned along the way from fighting for your rights.

Sound interesting? Call us on 8351 9500 or call or text us on 0475 751 131 and find out about a group near you.
 

The SASI Groups are currently suspended due to COVID-19 restrictions.  But please call or text us if you would like to be involved once they resume.

Focus Groups

We’ll be running at least 2 regional focus groups each year for the life of the project and hope that these groups will determine the future of how DRAS will conduct advocacy. If you are interested in being involved, call us on 8351 9500 or call or text us on 0475 751 131 to register your interest.

 

Focus Groups are currently suspended due to COVID-19 restrictions.  But please call or text us if you would like to be involved once they resume.

Training Future Leaders

We’re providing a range of training to our Board.  DRAS is proud that its Board is made up entirely of people with disabilities and believe with training, our Board will be better a representing people with disabilities. We are also hoping to train our next generation of Board members – so if you’re interested in attending any of our governance training with a goal of joining our Board in the future, give us a call on 0475 751 131.
