Self-Advocacy: Speaking for Yourself

Written Material

Two self-advocacy co-ordinators define self-advocacy and explain why it is needed. They emphasise that there is strength in joining with others. Self advocacy groups teach people skills in how to speak out. In addition, when people speak as a group they are more likely to be heard. They also suggest ways of starting a self-advocacy group.
