Speaking up for fairness

DA stands beside people with disability to help them know their rights, sort out issues, and be fully included in the community.

Our services

Our free individual advocacy services support people with disability across two-thirds of NSW, making us the largest individual advocacy disability organisation in the state.

As well as offering services in Sydney, we are strongly committed to regional, rural and remote areas in NSW. With local disability advocates on the ground in areas beyond the big cities, we understand first-hand the needs of these communities and the people who live there.

We’re also focused on growing people’s ability to stand up for themselves through self-help tools and support, and creating society-wide change to make systems and communities more fair, respectful and inclusive.
