Rights Information and Advocacy Centre (RIAC)

RIAC aims to achieve positive outcomes to individuals and their families by:

  • Providing information and support
  • Making referrals to appropriate services
  • Representing individuals to service providers
  • Taking issues to government levels
  • And any other steps that are necessary to uphold individual rights

RIAC provides a Systemic Advocacy Service  which focuses on making changes in systems while upholding the rights of all individuals.  We do this by:

  • Participating in ongoing consultation with Service Providers, Government Departments and Ministers.
  • Participating in advisory and management committees.
  • Monitoring services for people with a disability at a local, regional, state and national level.
  • Assisting in the planning and development of services for people with a disability
