Welcome to Side By Side Advocacy

Side By Side Advocacy is a community based, not-for-profit organisation. We are based in West Ryde, NSW.

We promote and uphold the rights, needs and interests of people with intellectual disability.

We do this through advocacy.

Advocacy is being ‘side by side’ with someone when they are facing challenging situations, dealing with uncertainty or being treated unfairly.

We offer two types of advocacy:

Our Citizen Advocacy program operates in the Ryde and Hunter’s Hill local government areas.

Individual Advocacy is available to people with intellectual disability in ten local government areas in the northern region of Sydney.

We welcome your enquiries if you, or someone you support, needs assistance with advocacy.

If you would like to know more about our organisation we would be very happy to hear from you!
