Bass Coast group

Listen to this page

New Wave Bass Coast is a self advocacy group run by and for people with Intellectual Disability and Acquired Brain Injury based in Wonthaggi, Gippsland.

Self advocacy groups are run by people with disabilities who have joined together to support each other and to have their voices heard.

We work to make sure we have the same rights, choices, and opportunities as anyone else in the community.

We are always open to new members, get in contact with us if you’d like to join or to hear more about our group!
