About our services
The Victorian Office of the Public Advocate (OPA) provides services to protect and promote the rights, interests and dignity of people with disability (specifically intellectual impairment, mental disorder, brain injury or dementia) living in Victoria.
These services include guardianship, advice, education, information, research, advocacy and support. They are delivered by the Victorian Public Advocate, OPA employees and more than 900 OPA volunteers.
How can OPA help you?
OPA’s Advice Service team can answer questions and provide information, advice and assistance on a diverse range of matters that affect people with disability.
OPA advocaces for the rights of people with disability in all its work. OPA also provides direct advocacy services through its advocacy and guardianship program, and through its advice service.
