An advocate can help you by providing you with access to information that will allow you to make educated choices, giving you the confidence to make these decisions, and aiding you in securing your rights and obtaining services or further assistance. Advocates and advocacy programs collaborate with the people they serve to achieve social inclusion, equality, and justice.
Feeling unable to express yourself might make you feel vulnerable, but it’s vital to know that independent assistance, known as Advocacy, is available to assist you in making your voice heard. Advocacy organizations provide assistance and information to help you communicate with others so that your opinions are heard and your rights are protected.
Advocates are unaffiliated with healthcare providers.
- Listen to you
- Assist you to find and explore your alternatives
- Provide information to help you make your own educated decision
- Put you in touch with relevant parties
- Contact relevant parties on your behalf and represent you
- Accompany you to meetings and appointments
In rare cases, an advocate may be required to represent the interests of another individual. Non-instructed advocacy is employed when a person is unable to explain their viewpoints.
An advocate’s advice and assistance are objectives, and an advocate cannot offer you their opinion, make judgments, or make choices on your behalf.
What sorts of advocacy exist?
- Non-instructed Advocacy
Non-instructed advocacy is taking positive action with or on behalf of someone who is unable to express their thoughts or preferences in a given scenario. The uninstructed advocate works to protect the person’s rights, provide fair and equitable treatment and access to services, and ensure that choices are made with their particular preferences and viewpoints in mind.
People who have communication impairments have the right to be represented in decisions that impact their life. Although not explicitly directed by the client, the non-instructed advocate protects the values underlying everyday existence, which implies that everyone has a right to a good life.
- Care Act Advocacy
Care Act Advocacy provides assistance to anybody who needs including caregivers and young carers, at any point of a care assessment, support plan, or review (including safeguarding).
- Advocacy for Independent Mental Capacity (IMCA)
The majority of IMCA service users have substantial communication challenges such as learning impairments, dementia, mental health disorders, and other types of cognitive disability. IMCAs also intervene when persons suffer a momentary loss of ability as a consequence of being unconscious, being under anesthesia, or other factors.
- Advocacy for Prevention
Preventative advocacy is a short-term issue-based and outcome-focused service that is available to people who are at risk or face stigma and who seek help for mental health issues, substance abuse treatment, have a long-term condition or diagnosis, living with HIV, or have care and support needs that would worsen without assistance.
