PWDA's Boarding House Individual Advocacy Project provides

  • free information and non-legal advocacy support
  • to any person with disability who lives in a Licensed Residential Centres (Licensed Boarding Houses) in NSW.

Family members, friends, neighbours, cares, and disability or mental health support workers can also ask us to help a person who lives in a Licensed Boarding House.

This information and advocacy support enables people with disability to increase the control they have over their lives through the representation of their interests and views. Some of the issues people are supported with are:

  • complaints about the quality of services and supports
  • access to adequate housing and supports
  • responding to abuse and neglect
  • complaints about financial management
  • Licensed Boarding House closure and relocation
  • decision making and guardianship
  • discrimination
  • major life changes and
  • access to health services.
