Short-term advocates are matched with a partner for as long as that person needs their help and support. This can be anything from 2 weeks to a year. Usually the Advocate will get to know the Advocacy Partner and find out about the issues they are facing. They will then work with the Partner to make a positive change. This is often through helping them to understand and complete complicated paperwork, talking to healthcare professionals on their behalf or helping them to manage their finances.
