Advocacy Support

As a carer you may sometimes feel that your opinions and ideas are not taken seriously, or that you are not always offered all the opportunities and choices you would like. This can be difficult to deal with, especially when you need to communicate regularly with health and social care professionals.

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. The Centre's team of Carer Support Workers are available to provide you with advocacy support.
