Advocacy

Advocacy is the process of supporting an individual so that their voice is heard. An ADA Australia advocate is someone who is by your side, working with you, to give you a louder voice.  Our advocates are available to provide individual and confidential support to help you work through an identified issue. ADA Australia provides free, confidential and client directed advocacy services to older people and people with disability in Queensland.

What is advocacy?

Guardianship

We support adults with impaired decision-making capacity to resolve Queensland guardianship and administration issues. If you have an EPOA who is not acting in your best interests, would like to revoke or change your EPOA, have people questioning your decision-making capacity, or have a QCAT Tribunal hearing coming up and would like support, we may be able to help.
