Advocacy ensures justice and the fundamental human needs, rights and interests of people impacted by brain injury.
Whether you need someone to speak on behalf of yourself or for someone you care for or you wish to advocate for yourself directly, it is important in making sure your needs and rights are properly supported. Advocacy commonly involves systems of support such as the NDIS and other government services but can extend to general public services and community associations. Whatever the situation, advocacy matters.
Advocacy is about justice and the fundamental human needs, rights and interests of everyone, but particularly people with a disability. It can involve getting someone to speak on your behalf, or self-advocacy where you speak for yourself.
