Minda has partnered with the South Australian Council on Intellectual Disability (SACID) and Our Voice South Australia to develop the Support to Speak Up initiative.

This initiative will play an important role in helping clients have a strong voice, giving them the confidence to express concerns and make decisions that will positively impact their life.

SACID and Our Voice SA will offer an independent advocacy service for clients in Supported Independent Living (SIL). The advocacy service will:

  • Listen to people at Minda;
  • Run peer support meetings;
  • Teach people at Minda about their rights;
  • How to speak up and use their voice;
  • Teach Minda staff about the rights of people with disability;
  • Help people at Minda to make choices and decisions; and
  • Help make things safer at Minda.

The advocacy service will be available to SIL clients who have a problem, worry or question about anything happening at Minda. Clients can contact SACID or Our Voice SA for support about:

  • Making a complaint;
  • Problems with Minda staff;
  • Feeling unsafe;
  • Privacy worries;
  • Getting information you can understand;
  • Services provided by Minda;
  • Your supports at Minda; or
  • Transport.
