- Advocacy for Inclusion is a non-for-profit DPO advocacy organisation in the ACT. We provide individual and systemic advocacy services to people with disabilities to promote their human rights and inclusion in the community. Our themes of individual advocacy stems from the justice space: people with disabilities in and out of the justice system, child protection (on behalf of parents with disability), guardianship and supported decision making, restrictive practices, institutional living and housing, education, the NDIS (AAT matters) and inclusion into the community.
- We also run self-advocacy groups and provide training on support decision making for organisations and groups, with the purpose of creating cultural change in people with disabilities making their own decisions. Our resources also include court resources designed for people with disabilities navigating the court system and being prepared and a police wallet card.
