Citizen and Community Advocacy

A volunteer advocate gives long term support to someone who needs help to speak up for themselves

Citizen advocates have supported their advocacy partners in many ways, including:

  • Building the skills and confidence to speak up for themselves
  • At care review meetings, making sure that they have a say about their care plan
  • Helping them speak to staff and family about things that important to them
  • Making sure they get the services they need including; education, employment and leisure opportunities
  • Supporting them to take part in their community
  • Building networks of support
