Where else can I find help?

Disability Advocacy

If you need help to work through an issue you are having, it may be helpful to talk to a disability advocate.

If there is a legal matter that is a part of the issue you are having, the Disability Advocate can work with you to contact our Telephone Advice Service for some information about how to resolve it.  Sometimes we work with Disability Advocates to resolve these issues for their clients.

You can look for a Disability Advocate in Victoria here, or on the Commonwealth website here.
