UNDERSTANDING & ADVOCATING FOR INDIVIDUALS TO ENSURE THEY'RE HEARD
Advocacy in all its forms seeks to ensure that people, particularly those who are most vulnerable in society, can:
- Have their voice heard on issues that are important to them
- Defend and safeguard their rights
- Have their views and wishes genuinely considered when decisions are being made about their lives.
Esperance Care Services can advocate on your behalf or assist you to self-advocate.
ECS offers a free and confidential advocacy service that promotes and protects the rights of people, helping express their views and enabling them to stand up for their rights. We can support you to resolve complex issues or concerns and to build and develop your confidence and capacity to access the services you need in your community.
