POhWER Advocacy

Community advocacy is:

  • Helping an individual say what they want to the right person.
  • Finding the right service to help if advocacy cannot.
  • Helping an individual to look into their options and what might happen if they make that choice.

This service is for anyone who is 18+ and lives in the borough of Camden who is diagnosed with a learning disability.
