What are Self Advocacy Groups? 

Self advocacy groups are run by people with disabilities who have joined together to have their voices heard and support each other.

They work together to make sure they have the same rights, choices, and opportunities as anyone else.

Speaking up for your rights
Self advocacy groups are about: 

 

- Speaking up for your rights and helping others do the same

- Supporting each other to say what you think and what you need.

- Learning and sharing information and ideas and skills

- Planning and working together for change

- Meeting new people and making friends

- Teaching people in the community about your rights, needs and issues

- Strength in numbers

- Creating change
