Advocacy - Disability Resources
The Disability Resources Division provides Advocacy Services, which involves helping people with disabilities under the age of 60 resolve issues with other agencies.
Staff members may make a telephone call, write a letter or have personal contact with an agency or individual with whom the client has had dealings to help ensure for instance that:
- the client's concerns are relayed and understood
- the client receives the service or benefit to which he or she is entitled
- the services or benefits are prompt and of high quality
- consideration is given to the client for emergency assistance, e.g. reconnection of utilities
