Advocacy Clinic

Parent to Parent is offering a free advocacy clinic with Miia Tolvanen from People with Disability Australia.  

Miia is an Individual Advocate based on the Sunshine Coast.  

Appointments are available either in person at the Parent to Parent Woombye office or via phone on the 2nd Friday of each month. 

Bookings are required, if you wish to make an appointment, please fill out the form below.

Topics Miia can cover would include:

  • Guardianship and administration related matters.
  • Going to an external review (AAT) for your NDIS plan.
  • Supported decision making.
  • How to make a complaint about your NDIS services, or any other service.
  • Child protection related issues (if your clients have any involvement with the Department of Child Safety).

Some things to remember would be:

  • Miia is not able to provide any legal advice or support.
  • The 1 hr session is for advice only, Miia would not be looking to take the person on as a client for individual advocacy. The person can book in again for a follow up clinic/advice session if they want.
  • Miia may be able to pick up some cases for individual advocacy when she has capacity. It is important to note that individual advocacy is a short term, issue focused approach. Individual advocacy is not a substitute for any funded or formal supports such as NDIS support coordination. Individual advocacy is not mediation, counselling or case management.
  • There is no cost.
  • Miia would need to record some basic information such as name, DOB, address (post code only), gender, ATSI status, citizenship status and details about disability. Miia will need to record these into our system for auditing and funding related purposes.
