Youth Disability Advocacy Service

About Youth Disability Advocacy Service (YDAS)

YDAS is a core YACVic agency, funded by the Victorian Government. At YDAS, we place the human rights and interests of disabled young people* at the centre of our work. YDAS undertakes individual and policy advocacy, working with disabled young people to ensure that their human rights are upheld so they can access services and participate as valued and respected members of their communities.

*In this document YDAS uses identity first language (disabled young people), as per the advice of the YDAS Steering Committee, which is comprised of disabled young people. However, we recognise that language and identity are personal choices, and that some people may prefer to use other terms including person first language (young people with disability).

YACVic’s vision is that the rights of young people in Victoria are respected, and they are active, visible and valued in their communities.

In July 2023, the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission (NDIS Commission) announced $4.4 million in grants to support the development of resources to deliver better outcomes for participants in the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). This includes the development of resources and initiatives to support people with disability to know their rights and speak up about what is important to them when receiving disability supports.

YDAS received funding from this grant program to co-design, develop and deliver resources targeted at disabled young people.
