Easy Read Advocacy

Advocacy is about your
voice being heard

Advocates support you to speak up, or they might speak up on your behalf if needed.



Advocacy is…

Totally free

Totally independent



When can an advocate help?

When you want to change things in your life

When you want help to speak to a person about care or support service

When you are not being listened to


What will your advocate do?

LISTEN to what you want

And work with you to:

Get your voice heard

Understand your rights

Get information you need

Explore your options

Make your own choices


We won’t tell anyone else what
you have said to us unless

You want us to

It involves danger to you or to other people

The law says we need to
