INDEPENDENT ADVOCACY

Independent Advocacy is about empowering people who are involved in using or receiving services. We work within Dumfries & Galloway to express our client’s views, wishes and feelings. An Independent Advocate will protect their clients rights and ensure they are treated with respect and dignity.

Dumfries and Galloway Advocacy Service will help a client understand what might be happening in their life and take control of their circumstances by empowering them to help themselves. They will use listening skills and help a client think through their problems or find information that will help them make informed choices and decisions. Advocates can also speak on a client’s behalf if they feel unable to do so, making sure their thoughts, feelings and wishes are fully understood by others, but also make sure they understand what may be said to them or about them.
