Advocacy Tasmania Inc. is an independent community organisation that has provided advocacy services across Tasmania for over 25 years. Our team includes a Board of Governance, employees, volunteers and members, who all work to promote and protect the rights and interests of our clients.
We provide free and confidential ‘Your Say’ advocacy services across Tasmania based on our ‘Your Say’ approach to advocacy. Our role is to help our clients speak up for themselves and to make sure that their own views and opinions are heard and understood.
We exist to support our clients to speak up, have their voice heard and make sure that their rights are protected.
Our advocacy services are for people with a disability, older people, people with mental illness and people who use alcohol or other drugs. We also support people who are impacted by elder abuse and people who are having issues they can’t resolve with the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
