WHAT WE DO

Advocacy

Who does SUFY advocate for?

Criteria

When SUFY is approached to do advocacy for a person, SUFY looks at each situation against the following criteria:

The Issue

Whether the issue is about the person’s fundamental needs such as human rights, safety, health, shelter, food and appropriate support to live in the community.

Previous Contact

Whether the person being advocated for has been assisted by SUFY previously.

Age

Whether the person with disability is between the age of 0 and 65.

Resources

SUFY has to have sufficient resources to advocate for individuals. SUFY can only advocate within the resources available to them.

Geographic Area

Whether the person lives in the Brisbane Metropolitan area, Moreton Bay and Redlands regions. Within reason, SUFY will continue advocating for someone where they move outside these areas. If the new location is not within a reasonable distance of the SUFY office, SUFY, where possible, will find an advocate for the person in their new area.
