We advocate when we stand with someone or speak up on their behalf to make sure their interests and rights are being heard.
Your Say is a free, confidential advocacy service that promotes and protects the rights of people with disability and those who identify as having a mental health issue. It’s available to people who live in the Perth metro area.
Our expert team can help you express your views and stand up for your rights. We can support you to resolve complex issues or concerns, and build your capacity to access the services you need in your community.
