About DARU

DARU is a statewide service established to resource the disability advocacy sector in Victoria.

The resources that DARU provides aims to support the Disability Advocacy sector and Disability Advocates through disseminating relevant and up to date information, organising forums around the state so that there is a coordinated approach to issues of concern, providing professional development opportunities and undertaking capacity building projects on behalf of the sector.

DARU is accountable to a Governance Group (DGG). The DGG is made up of members from its two auspicing agencies, Victorian Council of Social Services (VCOSS) and Disability Advocacy Victoria (DAV), the Office for Disability and the DARU Coordinator.
