Moving can be a challenge for most of us – losing social networks being an added trial. This was Renata’s experience when she moved south of the river to Atwell, especially as she is not confident using public transport alone. Could you be her friend, smooth her transition and link her to her local community?
At Citizen Advocacy Perth West we also assist people with intellectual disability but, unlike Kirk, Sarah and Justin, the individuals we assist usually don't have the involvement of a supportive family, so are even more vulnerable and socially isolated. We help by introducing them to a volunteer citizen advocate who acts as mentor, friend or spokesperson (not housemate!) Many citizen advocates work full time but enjoy weaving this flexible voluntary role into their lives. Central suburbs.
