Self advocacy is being able to speak up for yourself and the things that are important to you. When you know your rights and responsibilities you can speak up for what you want and need, and make choices and decisions to affect your life. This can be easier when you have people to support you. To find support near you have a look at this list of self advocacy groups in England.
