Support

We give people practical assistance to help them with everyday living. This might include helping them get specialist equipment, and clothing, bedding, or household goods. It might mean helping people sort out their finances or developing plans for individual needs– assisting clients to live a healthy & satisfying life.

Advocacy
Advocacy is listening respectfully to people’s needs and worries, and how they want to resolve any immediate issues. We can then offer them support to solve those problems. Sometimes this means speaking up on people’s behalf to government, service providers and others. The advocacy role promotes respect and awareness of Anangu and Yarnangu and their culture.
