Disability Advocacy and Complaints Service of South Australia Inc (DACSSA) is a free, independent information and support organisation servicing the Adelaide metropolitan area and regional/country South Australia. We are a not-for-profit organisation that is funded by the Australian Federal Government to assist people who live with disability, their family and carers, to source information and work through specific challenges in their life associated with their disability.
We are able to provide information to assist people in making informed decisions. We work together with clients to resolve their issues either on the phone or in person. We are able to attend meetings and hearings with our clients when they feel they would like support.
We assist in areas such as:
- NDIS Appeals
- Discrimination & Human Rights
- Equal Opportunity
- Housing & Homelessness
- Complaints about Disability Services
- Mental Illness
- SACAT Orders
We work to address systemic challenges, to improve the lives of the greater disability community. Many of our team have lived experience of disability. We are passionate about promoting the wellbeing of the disability community, assisting people to build their individual strengths.
DACSSA is not a legal service and does not give legal advice.
