This brochure is the promotional flyer for DARU’s online course ‘An Introduction to Disability Advocacy’. The learning outcomes and the full list of modules and lessons that make up the course are included in this brochure.
This flow chart was developed in response to a session on the NDIS review and appeals process that was part of an Advocacy Sector Conversations forum held on 1 March 2016. As the review process is new and complicated, this flow chart provides a simplified step by step guide to assist advocates and NDIS participants to navigate this process.
DARU works with organisations to promote and protect the rights of people with disability. We develop and distribute resources to keep disability advocates up to date and informed about issues affecting people with disability in Victoria.
It is important that the sector develops and uses consistent messaging across all stakeholder groups from Government to people with disabilities to the general public to achieve ‘cut- through’, connect with the people that matter and above all, have important core messages ‘heard’ in a meaningful and effective way.
Disability advocacy is often misunderstood and under valued. this information sheet aims to enhance understanding of how advocacy fits in with a human rights framework and provides an overview of the skills required for disability advocacy practice.
