What is Advocacy?

Advocacy can support you to have a strong voice when you need to make an important decision or are facing issues you need help with.

Our advocacy service is free, confidential and independent.

Advocates work in partnership with you, which means we listen to what you want and act on your behalf at all times.

Advocacy is:

  • Making sure your voice is heard
  • Helping you have more choice
  • Speaking out on your behalf

Advocacy is not:

  • Crisis support
  • Counselling
  • Emotional support
  • Befriending
  • Giving advice
