HOW DACSSA IS ABLE TO ASSIST
DACSSA works to put forward your views and ideas as a person with lived experience of disability.
Our advocates are able to assist you:
- To learn about the Disability Royal Commission
- Preparing submission documents
- Access helpful services
If you continue to experience issues in life relating to disability, DACSSA may be able to assist you in resolving your matter through provision of other forms of advocacy, for example, self-advocacy. More information on our advocacy services can be found in our Advocacy page.
DACSSA is not a legal service, a crisis service or a counselling service. If you need these services, we are able to connect you with services that may assist you.
For more information on our phased advocacy assistance regarding the Disability Royal Commission, please refer to our fact sheet.
Where does the advocacy take place?
- At the DACSSA offices
- Over the phone
- At a public place where you feel comfortable to meet e.g. a local library
- Via email
- Via videoconferencing
DACSSA understands that individuals may have special access requirements; please contact us if this is the case, so we can tailor our approach.
