National Advocacy Service for people with disabilities
Providing independent, representative advocacy services for people with disabilities
The National Advocacy Service (NAS) was set up to provide independent, representative advocacy services for people with disabilities. It is supported by the Citizens Information Board.
The National Advocacy Service for People with Disabilities can be contacted on the national number 076 107 3000.
The service has four regional teams who provide a service to people with all types of disability across the country. Each team has a regional manager, a senior advocate, an administrator and between five and eight advocates.
People with disabilities may get in touch with the advocacy service directly or they may be referred to it by family, friends or services. Disability service-providers may seek an advocacy service for people who use their services.
Full contact details for each region is available on the Citizens Information Board website here: http://www.citizensinformationboard.ie/services/advocacy_services/
