Advocacy is about supporting people who may be marginalised and vulnerable to speak up and be heard. Advocacy can change lives by strengthening voices and defending human rights. Advocacy can be vital for people who cannot speak up for themselves or people who feel they do not have the power to do so.
Advocacy is about working together to get people to listen to your views. An advocate can help you make decisions in your life and speak up for yourself or speak up for you if you find it difficult. They will also support you to understand your options.
In 2014 the Government introduced new social care law called the Care Act. Care Act Advocates can support people going through assessment processes if they find it difficult and don’t have family or friends to help them.
They do this by helping you:
- Understand what is happening
- Understand your choices and make your own decisions
- Tell others what you want and about your views and feelings
- Make sure your rights are upheld
Your advocate can also help you challenge decisions made about you that you are unhappy with.
