What is an Advocate?
An advocate is a person who can help say if you don’t like something or if you don’t agree with a decision that affects your life. Advocates are there to help you, and to make sure your voice is always heard.
An advocate would ensure your voice is heard on issues that are important to you and to have your views and wishes genuinely considered when decisions are being made about your life.
