Individual Advocacy

Explorability provides free Individual Advocacy services in the Perth Metropolitan, Peel and Wheatbelt regions to people with disability, their families and carers. We have incorporated an outreach approach into our service and have experience working with vulnerable people with disability who often have multiple complex needs, issues and circumstances.

 

Explorability Advocates can support you to:

  • Express your views and stand up for your rights

  • Use feedback and complaints processes to try to resolve any issues or concerns

  • Address barriers to accessing supports and services that meet your individual and cultural needs

  • Refer to other appropriate services in the community

  • Develop confidence and independence to advocate for yourself

 

Advocates at Explorability adapt the service according to your individual circumstances, strengths and abilities.

We provide advocacy in many different areas, including:

  • Support with housing issues and linking with housing services

  • Information and referrals for justice and legal services

  • Resolving access issues relating to health, mental heath, non-NDIS services, education, transport and the community

  • Discrimination, abuse and neglect issues

  • Having your voice heard when engaging in various systems

Our Advocates can also provide general information, resources and onward referral regarding other areas such as National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) issues, Disability Support Pension (DSP) matters and other Federal Government-funded programs.

 

If you think an Advocate could help you, please contact us to discuss your advocacy needs.
