What is advocacy?
Advocacy can support you to:
- make your opinions, views and concerns known
- find out about your rights and options
- make your own choices
- be involved in the decision-making process
- take part in important formal meetings
An advocate is someone who gives advocacy support to people. They are independent of social services and the NHS, and they are not a family member or a close friend.
