We advocate for your rights.

How can you make sure that NDIS providers are meeting the needs of their clients?

NDIS advocates provide independent advocacy for people with disabilities to ensure NDIS providers adhere to the Act and Regulations. Advocates also check in on participants, helping them exercise choice and control over their NDIS plan. NDIS advocates also ensure participants have their voice heard in matters that affect them.

According to a study from Australia’s Disability Rights Commissioner, independent advocacy is one of the most important aspects to our success in getting a supportive NDIS care plan.
