Disability Advocacy

TASC Disability Advocates support justice, equity and fair treatment for people with a disability and for people experiencing mental health challenges.

Our team speaks, writes and acts for individuals to ensure their needs are met and their rights are upheld in the wider community.  We support people to advocate for themselves to the greatest extent possible.

People with disability or mental illness, their families and carers can contact a TASC Disability Advocate with any concerns about how an individual is being treated. We support people throughout Toowoomba, Ipswich, Wide Bay and rural and regional areas in South West Queensland.

If you would like an in-person appointment, we have advocates to assist at our Toowoomba, Ipswich, Hervey Bay, Bundaberg and Gympie offices. For other locations we offer phone and video appointments.

How can the Disability Advocacy Service help?

TASC’s Advocates can help you with problems or issues with the services you currently use, with the aim of making sure these meet your needs. 

We can talk with you about your application to access the NDIS or the Disability Support Pension, or the support that you are getting from your NDIS service providers or other agencies.

Individual advocacy services

We work one-on-one with you, and your family/ carer/ support network, about issues like:

  • National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) services and complaints
  • Disability Support Pension applications
  • Discrimination and unfair treatment
  • Abuse, neglect and exploitation
  • Issues arising from your condition which impact education, employment, housing, or medical services

We advocate and encourage individuals and communities to advance the interests of people with a disability and their families.
We are part of a network of individuals and organisations that advocate against unfair and unjust actions affecting the lives of people with a disability.
