Advocacy: making choices

Support in making choices


Our advocacy service enables people with a learning disability to speak up and make decisions about things that are important to them.

Support to speak out and be heard. Mencap knows the importance of having your voice heard. That’s why we support people to develop the skills, confidence and knowledge they need to speak out about the things that matter to them. That might be to ask specific questions or to secure their rights and entitlements. Watch a video about Mencap's Advocacy service.

Empower Me

Michelle's story

Without advocacy I don’t know what I would have done, it has given me the confidence to speak up, understand my rights and help others.
