CAWS PROTECT & PROMOTE THE RIGHTS OF PEOPLE WITH DISABILITY

Volunteer & Make A Difference To Someone Today

CAWS has been in operation since 1982. The organisation started as a result of a submission in 1981 by the Council for Intellectual Disability (CID) to form the first Citizen Advocacy program in NSW. Citizen Advocacy is the name given to the committed relationship between a suitable, trained & supported volunteer who provides long-term advocacy to a person with an intellectual disability so that they are no longer alone and unprotected given their relatively powerless circumstances.

DISABILITY

CAWS offers many disability services including Advocacy, Support Coordination, Individual Support, Plan Management and Group activities.

NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an Australian Government initiative that funds costs associated with disability.

COMMUNITY

CAWS provide healthy meals and distributes food to people in need on different days from Lalor Park Community Hub and Lethbridge Park Community Centre.
