EDAC has been funded by the Department of Social Services and Department of Communities (Disability Services) to provide individual advocacy support and services throughout Western Australia. We have offices in three regional locations and we will use audio and visual conferencing facilities to communicate with clients living in other regional locations.

Kimberley Disability Advocacy (KDA)
This service is an independent advocacy agency for all people with disabilities living within the Kimberley Region of Western Australia. Staff visit remote communities during the dry season. KDA is managed by the Ethnic Disability Advocacy Centre. The WA Aboriginal Disability Network is a partner in this service. These organisations share similar philosophy and purpose in advocacy.

Who can ask for advocacy support?
All people with cognitive, intellectual, psycho-social, physical, and/or sensory disability regardless of background.

Referrals are accepted from individuals or organisations.

  • Listen to you about your disability issues and problems;
  • Offer advice on how KDA can help and/or provide you with options;
