Advocacy and information services - resources for service providers

Advocacy and information services perform a crucial role in the disability sector by helping people to make informed decisions about their lives and choose how they wish to engage with their communities.

Disability advocacy and information guidelines

Disability advocacy and information guidelines were introduced across NSW in October 2010 to provide greater clarity in the delivery of advocacy services for individuals and groups of people with disability, their families and carers.

The guidelines provide advice on service expectations and the aims and objectives of information and advocacy services across NSW.

Ageing, Disability and Home Care (ADHC) work with the advocacy sector and use feedback from people with disability to refine advocacy and information programs. The aim is to develop good practice in the delivery of advocacy and information supports for people with disability, their families and carers.

Advocacy and information service work plans

The Disability Advocacy Service Work Plan template (DOC) and Disability Information Service Work Plan template (DOC) are now available for organisations to use to develop their work plans.

The Work Plan templates specify the dates that work plans and end of year reports need to be submitted to respective ADHC district contacts.
