Consent means that a person has agreed to you acting on their behalf.
In line with Australian Privacy legislation, DACSSA considers privacy of people with disability to be of paramount importance. This is aligned with our person-centred philosophy that promotes participation and inclusion of people living with disability to make choices about the services they use.
If you are contacting DACSSA on behalf of a person, DACSSA will need to understand that you have consent to act on behalf of this person before progressing (e.g. Parent, Legal Guardian, or through written authority).
DACSSA will not act without consent.
If you are a person acting on behalf of a person with disability, we ask that you be responsible for championing their right to privacy.
