An advocate can be defined as someone who pleads for, intercedes, or speaks on behalf of individuals or groups.
CODA Inc. will ensure that clients are informed of their right to access an advocate to speak on their behalf. Disability advocacy plays an important role in making sure that the rights and interests of people with a disability are respected and realised.
The organisation is proactive in representing the needs of clients and their families and carers in service planning and improved service delivery through participation in local and regional networks and partnerships and/or direct consultation. Advocacy organisations form part of our regional networks.
CODA Inc. will assist clients to access an advocate of their choice, or assist them to self-advocate should they wish.
