Advocacy for adults with learning disabilities

People with learning disabilities sometimes need more support to get their views and wishes heard. It can be particularly hard to understand what someone is telling us if they do not use words to communicate.

Advocacy means to speak up for someone. With the help of an advocate people with learning disabilites can gain control over their lives, make their own choices about what happens to them and be as independent as possible.
