Individual assistance to give voice to people with acquired brain injury (ABI) or disability, when they need help to be heard on things impacting them.
This Service is for:
At times, people living with disabilities may need support navigating complex systems, having their voice heard, or addressing complaints and grievances.
At Brain Injury SA (BISA) our Advocacy and Appeals services provide a range of different types of assistance for this. Some services are specifically for brain injury; others are provided for people living with any type of disability.
Brain Injury SA provides a state-wide Advocacy Service to people with acquired brain injuries, that promotes the individual’s right to freedom of expression, self-determination and decision-making.
Our Advocates work on behalf of a person with ABI to help them to speak out and defend their rights and interests. We support them to seek the best available outcome of their complaint or issue.
