Warrington Speak Up is committed to supporting people to advocate for themselves. Promoting self-advocacy is a fundamental principle of effective advocacy support. Advocates will support you to develop your skills, knowledge and confidence to be able to confidently express your views and wishes, stand up for your rights and be your own advocate.
Some people like to join self-advocacy groups so that they can learn and practice their self-advocacy skills together with other self-advocates. You can find more information on our Self Advocacy page. We have also produced some self-help resources. You can use these yourself or with the help of a family member, friend or advocate.
