What are Self Advocacy Groups?

 



Governments

Governments

"As individuals with disabilities, supported by the 'system', we have a lot of experience and knowledge to offer and a right to make our voices part of all decisions that affect our lives and the lives of our friends and peers who also have disabilities."

Self advocacy groups are important for governments because they can inform their work in the area of disability through:

    - Having input into planning, legislation, policy making and disability action plans

    - Advising on service provision

    - sitting on boards and advisory panels

    - Connecting the government to the voice of the people so they can develop an understanding of the challenges and the problems they face

    - Advising on their needs and the changes required to ensure full community inclusion

    - Working in partnership to educate the community

    - Promoting the right to full citizenship
