Outreach Advocacy

** COVID-19 Update - We know that many people we work with have concerns about the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. People may be worried about how this will affect them, the services in their life, their health, finances, or their choices and independence. We are here to support our clients with these concerns through our Your Say outreach advocacy.

We can also support our clients with a wide range of other problems they are experiencing. Our clients are older people, people living with disability or mental health issues, and people who use alcohol or drugs.

We can help you anywhere in Tasmania through our outreach services. Our advocates connect with you where you are. They listen to your problem and help you decide on a way forward.
Our advocates work with you through:
• Phone
• Skype
• Email; and
• SMS.

We can also help educate groups and service providers about the rights of our clients and the availability of supports through our outreach work.

To reduce risks to our clients, we will not be providing face-to-face services until it is safe to do so.

To work with us, you can call, text or email us, and if you let us know your details, we can connect with you on Skype.

Advocacy is about supporting you to speak up, have your say and to make sure that your rights are protected. We can help you understand your options, make decisions and access or work with services.

Our advocacy services are free, confidential and available across Tasmania.

Our advocates support clients to have their voices heard on issues that, due to their age, disability, mental illness or drug use, stop them from exercising their right to choice and control.

We have also assisted clients with aged care help and help with the NDIS
