Our Advocacy Services are still running

COVID-19 Advocacy Mythbuster

There has probably never been a more important time for people to be able to get independent advocacy to ensure that their voices are heard. There are myths circulating which might restrict people’s access to advocacy, but our guide debunks them, to help enable people to get the support they need to have a strong voice and their rights respected. Please see our: COVID-19 Mythbuster.
