How Advocacy Can Help

It can often be difficult to deal with big organisations such as councils, health services, or housing associations when you feel you are not being heard.

How advocate can help you to: 

  • Tell people what you need or want
  • Understand the information and advice you receive
  • Have your views heard or understood
  • Support you to make informed choices about the things that affect you

What an advocate do:

  • Attend and plan meetings with you
  • Write emails and letters with you
  • Carry out research for you
  • Find out your rights and entitlements on a given issue
