General Advocacy

For general advocacy, advocates work with people on a one-to-one basis to ensure they have the right to ask, to question, to be heard and to receive answers. Advocates undertake a variety of tasks that can include supporting people at meetings, pursuing complaints and finding out information on behalf of the person they are supporting. Their role is to make sure the individual is informed of the options available to them together with the positives and negatives of making that particular choice.
