What is Practical Self-Advocacy?

Training in the area of advocacy can offer the support in developing a person’s own unique and individual capacity around speaking up on personal rights, choices and opinions. From speaking up confidently, communicating with others, to getting to know your own local community, from getting up in the morning to getting a job, practical self-advocacy is about helping through peer support and learning, how to start engaging with and working towards being more active in shaping your own life.
