Mackay Advocacy Inc. is a not for profit community service which provides Accredited Independent specialist advocacy support on behalf of vulnerable people with a disability from birth to 65yrs since 6th June 1997. Mackay Advocacy is governed by a voluntary Management Committee.

Accessing our service

We offer FREE independent advocacy services for people with disability through state and federal government funding.

There are no barriers to ethnic background or type of disability including those living with mental illness.

Referrals can be made by the person themselves (self-refer), family member, service provider, carer or support person to someone with a disability.

It is important to note however that if you are referring someone to us we are only able to act for that person if they wish us to do so.

Referrals are reviewed and prioritized according to levels of vulnerability and urgency. Making an appointment with an Advocate is essential.
