What is the Aboriginal and Disability Liaison Officer (ADLO) Program?

The ADLO program is a National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) funded program to assist Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with disabilities to become active participants of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

The ADLO staff employed at Danila Dilba support clients to access the NDIS by:

  • Identifying potential NDIS clients; 
  • Providing assistance with obtaining assessments to determine NDIS eligibility; 
  • Communicating with the NDIS to submit applications; 
  • Providing advocacy and support to ensure clients' NDIS plans suit their individual needs; and
  • Providing advocacy for clients already accessing the NDIS who are receiving appropriate supports and care to support them to live functionally in the community.

How Can Danila Dilba Clients Access the ADLO Team?

The next time you visit a Danila Dilba clinic, speak to the health professional you are seeing and tell them that you would like support from the ADLO program. This professional will refer you to our ADLO team, so that you can be contacted by an ADLO. One of our ADLOs will contact you to arrange a time to come and yarn about your situation and the supports you need.
