WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE OF THE AGED RIGHTS ADVOCACY SERVICE

The Aged Rights Advocacy Service (ARAS) offers a free, confidential and independent service to older people (or their representatives) who are:

* Receiving community based services
* Living in Commonwealth subsidised aged care facilities
* Receiving community aged care packages
* At risk of, or are, experiencing abuse.

ARAS provides advocacy assistance to support older people to uphold their rights and is the South Australian component of the National Aged Care Advocacy Program. The ARAS website provides more information about the range of work that ARAS undertakes, and about advocacy.


Aboriginal Advocacy Project

Over a period of 2 years, ARAS developed a relationship with the Council of Aboriginal Elders that culminated in a collaborative submission for an Aboriginal Advocacy Project. This was funded in 2003 as a 2 year fixed term project.

It aims to encourage Aboriginal participation in:

a) Accessing information about consumer rights and protections relation to the provision of Aged Care services, and,

b) Accessing mainstream services. The project has a developmental approach in linking Aboriginal people into support services to meet their needs, and improving service responses to those needs.


We always welcome any comments to improve the services that we provide so if you would like to provide feedback to us please complete the ARAS Consumer Evaluation Form and return it to ARAS?
