What We Do

Southern Disability Advocacy advocates for the rights and interests of people with a disability.  Where appropriate we will work with families and other informal supports of the person with a disability. Our services are free and we are independent of service providers and the Government, so we are able to advocate for our clients without conflict of interest.  See Who Can Use Us for more information.


Some areas we have worked in recently include:

  • Accommodation
  • Service access
  • NDIS internal appeals
  • VCAT Guardianship List hearings
  • Health


We are funded to work with people with a disability from the following areas:

  • City of Port Phillip, City of Stonnington & City of Bayside
  • City of Glen Eira & City of Kingston
  • City of Frankston & Shire of Mornington Peninsula.
  • City of Casey.


The advocacy provided will depend on the circumstances and your situation. You are in control of the advocacy we do for you.

We have a Self Advocacy Advice Line where you can request a 15 minute appointment to get some advice on how to advocate for yourself or a family member with a disability.


We work with people with all disabilities who are residents of Cities of Port Phillip, Stonnington, Bayside, Glen Eira, Kingston, Casey, Frankston & the Shire of Mornington Peninsula.


We are located in Mentone. Please call to see if we can assist. You can also find someone in your location. GET IN TOUCH | FIND SOMEONE IN YOUR AREA
