How can an advocate help?
An advocate can help a person to:

understand the process they are going through, their rights and what choices are available to them
be part of an important decision which is being made about them
prepare for and take part in meetings and tribunals
raise queries or concerns
access information in the format which is most suitable

Advocates can also provide information and sign
