Dispelling myths about advocacy

26th May 2020

Life has changed dramatically for everyone during the coronavirus outbreak. We’ve been given new guidelines about all aspects of our day-to-day life, and the government have put new legislation in place.

It’s no surprise there’s confusion about health and social care provision, including advocacy.

The right to advocacy has not changed during the pandemic. People are still entitled to support from an advocate as they were before the outbreak.

We are still taking advocacy referrals, and advocating for people by phone, video, email, and in emergencies, face-to-face.

We’re sharing a mythbuster, put together by advocacy organisations in collaboration with NDTi.
