Are you looking for individual advocacy? 

 WWDACT is not able to provide individual support or advocacy to individuals with disability or their families. We do not provide individual advice or advocacy regarding NDIS plans or meetings.  

WWDACT is a systemic advocacy and peer support organisation for women, girls, feminine identifying and non-binary people with disability in the ACT region. 

We run programs and events, peers support and networking opportunities and work with government and non-government organisations to improve the status and lives of women* with disabilities in the ACT and surrounding region. We work alongside other services to remove barriers for women with disabilities in the ACT. 

Should you need individual advocacy or support regarding your personal circumstances, we encourage you to contact the following organisations: 

  • ACT Disability & Aged Care Advisory Service (ADACAS), call (02) 6242 5060 or email adacas@adacas.org.au or visit their website at www.adacas.org.au – contact for disability advocacy, mental health advocacy, carers advocacy, advocacy for older people and support with self-advocacy. This includes NDIS-related advocacy. 
  • Advocacy for Inclusion (AFI), call (02) 6257 4005 or email info@advocacyforinclusion.org or visit their website at www.advocacyforinclusion.org – contact AFI for individual advocacy  (including NDIS-related advocacy), support with self-advocacy and policy/systemic advocacy.
