The A.C.T. Disability, Aged and Carer Advocacy Service (ADACAS), is an independent, not-for-profit, advocacy organisation helping people with disabilities, older people and their carers. ADACAS provides free independent advocacy in the ACT. During 2016 we are celebrating 25 years of providing advocacy and information to our clients.
Adacas provides help and support to people with disabilities, the elderly and their carers.
Advocacy is about helping a person to be heard in the decisions that affect their life. Advocacy aims to increase a person’s control over goods, services and quality of life
