How do short-term Citizen Advocates help?

By admin on August 22, 2013 in

Short-term Advocates are able to help someone who has an issue that cannot wait. They will help someone to look at their situation and figure out the best way to deal with it. That may be doing something very simple like filling out a form, or helping someone through a very complicated and emotional situation. A short-term advocate can make sure that someone understands to the best of their ability what the situation is and what their rights are. They can then help them to put their views forward. By receiving Advocacy a partner will feel supported and less vulnerable in a difficult situation.
