Citizen Advocacy…

is an unusual name.  When we talk about it, we often find ourselves saying what it isn’t.  It isn’t part of the government bureaucracy.  It isn’t a church or political group, and it isn’t a complaints service..........

Citizen Advocacy…

facilitates the establishment of advocacy relationships between

a person with a disability (protégé)

- who is vulnerable

- who has significant unmet needs


a citizen

-  who is competent, principled and resourceful

-  who makes a commitment to become involved in a relationship to the person with disability in order to meet some of that person's needs as if they were their own

-  who is prepared to work in an unpaid capacity
