Everyone has rights … do you know yours?

Our free webinars and peer support groups could help.

Are you:

  • Living in shared supported accommodation? 
  • Accessing NDIS support eg SIL or SDA?
  • Or supporting someone who is?

Have you have ever felt uncomfortable in a situation, but were not sure why?

Like you couldn’t speak up, or weren’t listened to? 

Sometimes this feeling can be because your rights are not being respected.
