ADA Australia is proud to have been supporting Queensland seniors and people with disability for 30 years.
From humble beginnings in 1991, with funding for a small team of 3 hosted by the Northern Suburbs District Senior Citizens’ Centre– a service within a service – offering advocacy support to older people within the Home and Care Program, to a statewide advocacy organisation.
We thank those who went before us and through their hard work and determination have built ADA Australia into what we are today.
We now have 70 staff statewide who provide a range of advocacy services to support Queenslanders including:
- Aged care advocacy, information and referrals for people receiving government funded aged care services
- Disability advocacy, information and referrals for people with disability living in Redlands, Logan, Beenleigh, Gold Coast or Central Queensland
- A community legal centre, ADA Law, specialising in supporting people with impaired capacity with guardianship and administration matters including representation at the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal and supporting people living in aged care experiencing elder abuse
- Host of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Network (ATSIDNQ) which provides a disability support network and advocacy service, Side by Side First People’ Advocacy, for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with disability and their families and carers.
Advocacy is needed now more than ever, and our experienced advocates are here to help you.
