Citizen Advocacy Launceston Region Inc establishes one-to-one advocacy relationships between suitable community members and people with intellectual disabilities who may be at risk, lonely and vulnerable.
Some people with disability experience disadvantage and vulnerability in their lives and this creates a need to have someone who:
Is prepared to make a personal commitment to stand beside the person;
is prepared to take action when action is needed;
will ensure that the person’s interests are understood and effectively responded to; and
is prepared to take the person’s life seriously.
With the support of the program these independent relationships offer practical assistance in order to enhance the quality of life for the person with a disability, their involvement in the community and to decrease their level of vulnerability.
