The action of representing oneself or one's views or interests. This may be with respect to the care and support that people receive or the way that services are organised locally.
Plain English definition
Think Local Act Personal (TLAP) Jargon Buster
Speaking up for yourself about what you want and how you want to live your life. This may be about the care and support you receive yourself, or it may be about the way that services are organised in your area. You do not always have to do this on your own: you can have a supporter with you, or there may be a self-advocacy group in your area.
