About Ability Advocacy

*Ability Advocacy Update*

In January 2019, Ability Advocacy merged with Spinal Cord Injuries Australia. SCIA has been working with people with disabilities for over 50 years and will allow Ability Advocacy to continue to stand up and speak out for the rights of people with disabilities in the Northern Rivers.

Our Mission

We are committed to providing advocacy, information and training to enable people with disability to promote and exercise their rights and to understand their responsibilities. 

About Ability Advocacy

Ability Advocacy (formerly Ability Incorporated) was formed in February 1990 to advocate for people with disability. Ability Advocacy is funded by the Australian government Department of Social Services (DSS) and NSW Ageing, Disability and Homecare (ADHC). Our competent and experienced staff all have extensive training and experience with working with people with disability. We are constantly updating our knowledge and skills by attending regular education sessions and inter-agency meetings. We have a management committee made up of people with disability.

What is Advocacy?

  • Advocacy is speaking, writing or acting on behalf of another person
  • Advocacy is standing by someone
  • Advocacy is going into bat for another person
  • Advocacy is being on your side and no-one else's
