At Melbourne East Disability Advocacy we recognise that everyone has different needs. We value and treat each person of our consumers with the respect and dignity you deserve. We will help you to do things that you think are important and beneficial to you. We are here to listen to you and want to encourage you to feel heard.
We will work individually with you to help you work out your own advocacy goals and needs. We respect cultural difference and we treat everyone equally.
If negotiated we may aim to match you with a volunteer citizen advocate who meets your advocacy needs, taking things like language, locality and gender into account.
We will discuss with you if you need support from an individual advocate or a volunteer citizen advocate.
