It varies. Family Advocacy, for example, campaigns on behalf of people in NSW with all kinds of disability – including intellectual/cognitive, developmental, neurodivergent (autism, sensory processing disorders, other), physical, and sensory (hearing and sight impairment). Other types of disability amongst families that Family Advocacy represents include Down Syndrome, developmental delay, autism, cerebral palsy.

Whereas the Physical Disability Council of NSW focuses on making the system better primarily for people with physical disabilities.

Another service, IDEAS, assists people with any disability no matter how acquired at any age or life stage – alongside their families, carers and supporters.
