Support and Advocacy

Disability advocacy is acting, speaking or writing to promote, protect and defend the human rights of people with disability.
While there are other advocacy groups, and certainly some in areas not mentioned here, these are the groups who have given us permission to publish their links on our website. A full printable list is available.
