Individual – Advocacy Facilitator

About the Activity

“Our Lives, Our Voices” is Self-Advocacy Programme which functions within MINDS Institute (MI).
The Programme brings individuals with special needs through an introspective journey to explore their strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes, and explore ways of communicating these to others.
This programme nurtures and provides support, through our vibrant community, for PWIDs to grow into Confident and Independent Self-Advocates as they learn to take ownership of the choices they make.

What Self-Advocacy means to us:
Self-advocacy goes beyond speaking up for your own rights.

• It means more than saying a “yes” or a “no”.
• It is a way of life in engaging actively in decisions that matter to you.
• It means taking ownership of the choices you make. As simple as deciding what you want to eat for breakfast.
• It also encompasses complex decision-making skills like planning a speech or an Overseas Trip.
