Do you need help to solve a problem related to your housing, health, education, transport, justice, child protection, domestic violence, or cultural activities?

The Disability Advocacy Futures Program provides information services and advocacy assistance to people living in Sydney, South-Eastern Sydney, and South-Western Sydney Local Health District (LHD) areas.

This service also provides advice and support for residents living in Assisted Boarding Houses located in Sydney, South-Eastern Sydney, or South-Western Sydney Local Health District areas.

We can help you with:

  • Information – Telling you about your rights and where you can get help
  • Self-advocacy – Talking to you about ways you can solve your problem yourself
  • Advocacy – Working with you to help you solve your problem
