Citizen Advocates are volunteers who provide help and support to people in their community with health conditions or disabilities who are struggling to be listened to and/or are unsure of their rights. Advocates are matched with one advocacy partner and their main aim is to ensure their partner feels valued, respected and included.

A potential advocate does not have to be good at everything. Different partners will have different needs and will vary in the kind of relationship they want with their advocate. A partner needing someone to help them get support- or services they are being denied- might require a different advocate from someone whose overriding need is to engage with their local community, or an individual who may require support to communicate their wishes and opinions.
