Dorset Advocacy Makes a Difference!

Dorset Advocacy is an independent organisation in Dorset which helps people with all kinds of disabilities and others, to speak up for themselves or to act on someone’s behalf.

My name is Helen and I have Cerebral Palsy and need 24 hours support. I was a trustee of Dorset Advocacy for 23 years and in that time I was an advocate for a lady with complex needs.

Throughout all our lives we all go through difficult times, even if we think we are very independent, we might need some kind of support from a family member, a friend or an advocate.

I would like to think I could go through life without help. I am very independent in my mind but we all need advocacy.
