Advocacy

Muscular Dystrophy WA aims to advocate, protect and advance the legal, human and service rights of people with muscular dystrophy and neuromuscular conditions. Muscular Dystrophy WA staff are here to work with you to achieve outcomes or refer you to an organisation that is able to further assist you. Advocacy can be provided on an individual, group or systemic basis with the overall aim of achieving equal access and rights.

Advocacy can be used to provide support to help you to self advocate or for Muscular Dystrophy WA staff to advocate on your behalf dependent upon your needs and issue. Muscular Dystrophy WA aims to support members to develop their confidence, assertiveness and self advocacy skills.

Advocacy can also involve Muscular Dystrophy WA feeding back concerns and issues identified by members to government and other policy making bodies to help shape future services for people living with muscular dystrophy and related neuromuscular conditions.

If you have a question please do not hesitate to contact us either by contacting our Community Support Team 08 9380 3400 or email community@mdwa.org.au
