Welcome to advokit-NDIS

This website has been developed by Disability Advocacy Network Australia Limited (DANA) to support advocacy for people with disabilities in connection with the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

DANA is committed to the vision of an Australia that includes and values people with disabilities and respects human rights for all. Thoughtful use of NDIS funded services and supports can make a strong contribution to achieving this vision.

Whether you are a person with a disability, a family member or an independent disability advocacy agency, we aim to inform you about the rights and entitlements of people with disabilities under the NDIS and about how to engage with DisabilityCare Australia to achieve supports that suit the wishes and circumstances of a person with disability.

You can browse the site for general information or use the main navigation menu and search function to find information about specific issues.

There are also options below to ask a question, provide feedback or submit a case study for inclusion on this site.
