What is Advocacy?

Advocacy is taking action to help people say what they want, secure their rights, represent their interests and obtain services they need.

Advocates work in partnership with the people they support, listen to their situation, take their side and ensure their needs, wishes and choices are heard. Advocacy promotes social inclusion, equality and social justice.
