What is Advocacy?

What we can do for you

An Advocate will, if you wish:

  • Act for you only when and how you choose
  • Find out what you think about things
  • Help you to find information
  • Accompany you to meetings, medical appointments and reviews
  • Stand by you when you have to make choices or decisions about things which affect your life e.g where you live or how you are cared for
  • Do things with you not for you
