What is advocacy?
Advocacy means getting support from another person to help you express your views and wishes, and to help make sure your voice is heard. Someone who helps you in this way is called your advocate.
Some people have difficulties taking part in the care decision-making process. This could be for a variety of reasons, including having a learning disability, mental or physical health issues, or being very elderly or ill.
There are several different types of advocates that offer a range of support.
