What is Self Advocacy?
Self Advocacy is about speaking up about your rights and the services and supports you may want or need. It's about having a say about things that are important to you to make change happen.
SAWA supported by PWdWA has secured an extension of time and additional funding from the Individual Capacity Building Program Grant Round 2019-20 for the Self Advocacy WA (SAWA) Capacity Building Project to June 2024.
The intention of this project is to provide the opportunity for SAWA Members to:
- Further develop skills in co-designing and co-facilitating meetings and forums, connecting with SAWA members, using social media and attending forums.
- Review and provide information on self advocacy in relation to individual and group issues.
- Connect and network with other organisations that do peer support.
You can become a member of Self Advocacy WA (SAWA) if you are:
- A person with disability living in Western Australia
- At least 15 years old
