What is advocacy?
Advocacy is acting, speaking or writing to promote, protect and defend the human rights of people.
How can I find advocacy services?
Need some help making your way through the system? You can get help from the Rights, Information and Advocacy Centre (also known as RIAC).
The Australian Government has published a Disability Advocacy fact sheet. It explains:
- what disability advocacy is and why it’s important
- how to find an independent advocate.
