We believe the strength of our organisation lies in combining the expertise of different professions (lawyers, social workers, disability workers) to achieve the best outcomes for disadvantaged clients.
Advocacy Law Alliance provides services such as individual advocacy for people with a disability through Disability Advocacy NSW and legal advice and representation through the Mid North Coast Community Legal Centre.
We offer a range of legal and related services. Possible services include but are not limited to:
* Legal Information and referral
* Legal Advice
* Advocacy and representation for particularly vulnerable clients
* Community legal education
* Law reform and public policy development and advocacy
MNCCLC operates under the auspice of Advocacy Law Alliance Inc. (ALA). ALA understands the fiduciary duty of CLC personnel, particularly the duty of confidentiality and loyalty owed to CLC clients. ALA uses documented information barriers and various compliance procedures and monitored practice which restricts confidential client information flowing between DANSW/ALA staff, volunteers and managers and CLC staff and volunteers.
DA’s helps people of all ages with any type of disability or mental illness get fair treatment in the Hunter, New England, Mid North Coast, Central West, Central Coast and Hawkesbury-Nepean and Far West regions of NSW, AUSTRALIA.
An advocate can provide individual advocacy and help get fair treatment: from government departments, disability services, other services and businesses; at work, university, school or TAFE; with accommodation, transport and access; with legal, healthcare or money issues and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
We also assist with systematic advocacy issues and provide education sessions.
