Understand Your Entitlements
The point of advocacy is to make sure YOU are heard and that YOUR RIGHTS are understood by you, by professionals around you and are upheld.
You have rights! Some of these are in law. That means the Government has to do those things and if they do not they can be challenged by lawyers. Some are in policy. That means people who work in Government have to do them. If they do not happen, these can be challenged with a complaint. Others are in guidance. That means professionals should do these things. There are different ways to challenge this.
