Logo for North East Citizen Advocacy (NECA)

A Citizen Advocate is an unpaid member of the local community who is orientated and supported by the coordinator, to speak up on the behalf of a vulnerable person. The coordinator finds a person with an intellectual disability who need support and recruits a voluntary advocate to be matched with them.

Advocates support an individual to make decisions about their life and advocate for their rights and interests.
