FPDN is committed to promoting the rights, interests and wellbeing of people with disability.

FPDN does not provide individual advocacy (one-on-one help for individuals with disability) however we can refer you to the following organisations:


National Disability Advocacy Program (NDAP)

The Australian Government has a National Disability Advocacy Program (NDAP) that provides people with disability with access to effective disability advocacy that promotes, protects and ensures their full and equal enjoyment of all human rights enabling community participation.

The Program offers an advocacy provider search service online.

You can find out more about the service by watching the video about the NDAP the Department has made.
