We're here to support your choices
What is advocacy
Our role as advocate depends on your situation and the support you want, but we are here to support your choices.
Here to support your choices. We can:
listen to your views and concerns
help you explore your options and rights (without pressuring you)
provide information to help you make informed decisions
help you contact relevant people, or contact them on your behalf (with your permission)
accompany you and support you in meetings or appointments.
We will not:
give you our personal opinion
solve problems and make decisions for you
make judgements about you.
