Advocacy is getting support from another person to help you:
- express your views and wishes
- secure your rights
- have your interests represented
- access information and services
- explore choices and options
Advocacy can help people become more aware of their own rights.
Advocacy can help people to exercise their rights and be involved in decisions that are being made about their future.
Advocates are provided by a number of different organisations in Birmingham.
Advocates are normally requested when a person has no one who is able to support them to express their own views and opinions.
