Information & Advocacy Services

The Disability Trust provides information for people with disabilities and their families about everyday issues including:

  • Locally available programs and services
  • Referral to counselling or advocacy services
  • Self advocacy & support groups
  • Forums and workshops
  • Gaining access to services, aids and equipment
  • Community Links

The Information and Advocacy services have 3 programs:

  • Disability Information and Assistance Line (DIAL) – covers the Illawarra Region and provides Information services
  • Illawarra Self Advocacy group – group that meets monthly to increase skills, confidence and knowledge, in a fun way, so that people can speak up for themselves and help others to speak up as well
  • Shoalhaven Information and Advocacy (SIA) – covers the Shoalhaven Region and provides Information services and direct advocacy for people with a disability

The Trust also produces and distributes information about events and services for people with disabilities, frail aged and their carers through a monthly newsletter.
