The Youth Disability Advocacy Service (YDAS) is raising voices, expanding choices and creating change for young people with disabilities in Victoria, Australia.
YDAS works alongside young people with disabilities between the ages of 12 and 25 to raise awareness of their rights and to support them to achieve what they want.
YDAS provides one-on-one support through their individual advocacy service and also work on broader social issues affecting young people with disabilities through systemic advocacy. This broader work is directed by the YDAS steering committee whose membership is made up exclusively of young people from across Victoria with a range of disabilities.
YDAS is a service of the Youth Affairs Council Victoria (YACVic) and is funded by the Office for Disability.
