The range of services and support available for Dorset carers including how to join the carers information service.

Advocacy is a way to help people who may not be able to tell others what they want.

An Advocate gets to know your views and wishes and gives you support to tell others what these are.

Family and friends or health and social care staff can help you speak up.  But it may be difficult if you have different ideas about what you want.

An independent advocate helps you to:

  • express your views and concerns
  • access information and services
  • explore choices and options
  • defend and promote your rights and responsibilities

They speak for you without judging you or giving you their views and opinions.
