Advocacy Tasmania

Advocacy Tasmania

‘Your say’ advocacy is all about helping you to be heard and understood.

If you are unable to speak for yourself, or find it difficult, our Advocates can help you.

We can provide information about your rights, and help you to deal with problems or complaints.
Best of all, everything we do for you is: free, confidential, independent and professional! 

What can we help with?

Something you don’t understand.

The way you’re being treated doesn’t feel right.

Not getting what you’re asking for.

Who can we help?
We work with older people, people living with disability or mental health issues, and people who use alcohol or drugs.

How we do it…

Individual Advocacy
You are in control. You tell us what you want to happen and how we can help you. We will provide information and talk with you about what choices you have. We then work out a plan together to sort out your problem.

If you are concerned about elder abuse, phone the Helpline for information. Our Helpline staff can also put you in contact with an Advocate, or help you get another service. We run the Helpline for the Tasmanian Government.
