The Youth Disability Advocacy Service (YDAS) is raising voices, expanding choices and creating change for young people with disabilities in Victoria, Australia.
YDAS works alongside young people with disabilities aged 12 to 25 to raise awareness of their rights and to support them to achieve what they want.
We provide one-on-one support through our individual advocacy service. We also work on broader social issues affecting young people with disabilities through systemic advocacy. This systemic work is directed by the YDAS steering committee, which is composed of young people from across Victoria, most of whom have disabilities.
YDAS is a service of the Youth Affairs Council of Victoria (YACVic). We are funded by the Office for Disability.
