Citizen advocacy works to promote the rights and interests of people with intellectual disabilities who need assistance in one or more major life areas. The program matches people with intellectual disability with a volunteer advocate from the community on a primarily one to one, long term basis. The office offers ongoing support and advice to the advocate and provides training through orientation. Through Citizen Advocacy a person can contribute to the well-being of a citizen who has an intellectual disability, by volunteering some of their time and interest. The Citizen Advocate can also change community attitudes and ideas. The Advocate may take an informal role such as friend, adviser or spokesperson. No formal qualifications are required. Citizen Advocates may come from many backgrounds and ages. The main requirement for Advocates is that they are caring people, willing to give some of their own time to assist another person enjoy life more.
