What is Advocacy?
Advocacy is about someone independent helping you get your voice heard.
An advocate is trained to support you.
It does not cost to have an advocate.
An advocate can:
Help you understand your rights
Listen to you
Help you say what you want
An advocate cannot:
Make decisions for you
Take other people’s side
Be a friend
An advocate will not tell anyone what you said unless you want them to.
Or unless you, or someone else may be at risk.
