Advocacy services for older people
Advocacy services represent or act in the interests of older people to promote, protect or defend their welfare or rights.
The role of advocacy is to help older people enjoy the same rights and opportunities as other members of society.
An advocacy service can help you get what you want or what you are entitled to receive by:
- helping older people to act for themselves
- supporting families and carers to act on behalf of an older person
- acting with or for an older person
