Be Heard Self Advocacy

Struggling to be heard?

Do you feel frustrated or let down by services?
Do you find it hard to voice your problems and get your needs met?

SWAN’s Self-Advocacy Course can help give you the skills and confidence to speak up for yourself.

How is the course planned?

Each session will provide confidence building activities, and tool kits to help you self-advocate in different situations in your life.

What issues will the course help you with?

• Housing

• Employment

• Benefits

• Raising complaints

• Health & Social Care Meetings

SWAN’s Social Value Be Heard projects are aimed at providing tools and resources to individuals to give them the confidence and skills to self-advocate. Our programmes are co-designed and delivered with Peer Advocacy Coaches who are Experts by Experience. This ensures that our programmes are targeted appropriately for the audience and cover issues relevant to them.

Self-Advocacy is being able to speak up for yourself and tell people what you want and need. People who can self-advocate can make their own complaints and be part of decision making.
SWAN believes that with the right tools and resources anyone can learn to be their own advocate.

SWAN’s Be Heard projects aim to increase an individual’s confidence and ability to speak up by providing them with these tools and resources.
