Advocacy

Skip main menu

Advocacy is one of the ways that people with learning disabilities can get more choice and control in their lives. 

Some of the different types of advocacy are: 

  • Self advocacy - speaking up for yourself  
  • Citizen advocacy - people who get to know someone with a learning disability so that they can help get their wishes understood and heard 
  • Short term, issue based or crisis advocacy - where people are (usually) paid to speak up for someone

Cumbria People First provide advocacy service you can find out more about them from the website link here:
