Melbourne East Disability Advocacy is a not-for-profit community organisation that provides advocacy support alongside people with intellectual disability. Support is provided directly by our professional and paid staff. It may also be provided by volunteer citizen advocates where a person with intellectual disability who is at risk of social exclusion is matched to a dedicated volunteer, called a ‘citizen advocate’. MEDA supports long term citizen advocacy partnerships and is developing a short term citizen advocacy role where citizen advocates are engaged short term to address an identified issue or to assist a person with intellectual disability to transition to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). The short term citizen advocacy position is a new role that we are currently recruiting.
