Adacas Support Office

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.

Currently ADACAS is experiencing high volumes of requests for support. This means that in addition to meeting the usual eligibility of ADACAS the Priority of Access Policy is in effect.
This means a person must also be at immediate risk of the following:

  • Institutionalisation
  • Arrest or incarceration
  • Losing contact with children
  • Losing self- determination- this might include a mental health treatment order, guardianship or financial management order
  • Significant or severe abuse/harm- this might include financial, physical, emotional or sexual- to self or others
  • NDIS Administrative Appeals Tribunal

About Adacas

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
