What is Self-Advocacy?

Self-advocacy is understanding your needs, communicating those needs effectively and understanding what type of support you need. Often, decisions are made on your behalf which may affect your wellbeing and it is your right to speak up and express your feelings and wishes on these decisions. 

What happens in our Self-Advocacy Groups?

Our meetings offer you the opportunity to understand your rights, choices, care, and support needs so you can make informed decisions every day. We will provide you with all the information, resources, and materials to help you with making these decisions so you can live the least restrictive life possible. 

How will it help me?

Self-Advocacy Groups can help you to:

  • Meet others in a friendly environment who have similar experiences.
  • Develop new skills and learn how to speak up for yourself.
  • Learn from invited speakers on a range of topics.
  • Go on outings with other members in the group.
