Dear clients of Disability Advocacy Service,

Disability Advocacy Service and the Centre for Remote Health are working together to learn about people’s experiences of getting a good home that meets the needs of people with disability. We want to use this information to tell government how to help people with disability to get good homes.

We may contact you and would love to talk to you about your experiences in getting a home that makes you happy. You do not have to talk to us if you do not want to talk. It is up to you. We will not tell anyone about you or that we spoke to you. It is your choice.

If you want to talk to us please let us know by phoning us on 89531422 or you can come to our office in Reg Harris Lane in Alice Springs.

Thank you for your time.

Noeline Laurie
