A number of Victorian providers offer advocacy and support assistance to NDIS participants who are seeking review of NDIA decisions through the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT).

The services of a support person are provided by the National Disability Advocacy Program (NDAP), funded through the Commonwealth Department of Social Services. Access to a skilled support worker to act as an advocate is available, as well as, in the case of complex and novel legal issues, access to legal assistance.

A support person can help by:

  • Explaining the review process, including what is involved pursuing an appeal to the AAT;
  • Assisting with the preparation of the required documents;
  • Providing advice and skills so the person who is lodging the appeal can better represent themselves;
  • Attending AAT conferences and hearings to help the person to put their case to the AAT.

Victorian NDIS Appeals Providers are:

  • Action on Disability within Ethnic Communities
  • Action for More Independence & Dignity in Accommodation Inc.
  • AED Legal
  • Disability Justice Advocacy
  • Grampians Disability Advocacy
  • Leadership Plus
  • Rights Information and Advocacy Centre
  • Victorian Mental Illness Awareness Council Inc.
  • Villamanta Disability Rights Legal Service Inc.

More information on NDIS Appeals can be found on the DSS website or by emailing .
