INDEPENDENT ADVOCACY

 

 

Advocacy is when someone makes sure that your opinion and experiences are properly heard by health or social services. They can also make contact with organisations and professionals on your behalf if you are not comfortable doing this, and will make sure that none of the things you want to say get forgotten or missed or ignored.

 

As a Carer, it’s not always easy to stand up for your rights or for those of the person you love and care for. Sometimes you don’t have enough information or you might feel overwhelmed with responsibility and exhaustion and don’t feel up to challenging decisions made by professionals, even when you know in your heart that it is not the right decision for the person you care for.

That’s when our Carers Support Advocates can help you out as they have the confidence, knowledge and the experience to speak up for you or to help you to speak up for yourself.

 

They will listen to you and help you to access information, consider options and express your views. They will also defend your rights and make sure you have access to the services to which you are entitled. Our Carers Support Advocates can make phone calls, or write letters on your behalf, and can also support you at meetings.

 

All you have to do is ask!
