NDIS Self Advocacy Working Group meets with NDIA Representatives







Self advocacy groups can help service providers to:


  • Advise on the quality of services and make them better
  • Inform service evaluation and reporting
  • Empower people to express their individual needs and support self-determination
  • Enable participatory decision making and choice within a service
  • Build skills to deliver person-centred planning.


Self Advocacy supports the aims of the National Disability Insurance Scheme's (NDIS) Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) to ensure that:


  • People with disability are connected and have the information they need to make decisions and choices.
  • People with disability have the skills and confidence to participate and contribute to the community and protect their rights.
  • People with disability use and benefit from the same mainstream services as everyone else.
  • People with disability participate in and benefit from the same community activities as everyone else.
  • People with disability actively contribute to leading, shaping and influencing their community.

And supports the National Standards for Disability:


  • Rights
  • Participation and Inclusion
  • Individual Outcomes
  • Feedback and Complaints
  • Service Access
  • Service Management
