” Advocate “
The authority of the Service User and who represents their interests.
An advocate can be a family member, a friend or an agency appointed by or for the Service User.
Community Connect Transport is committed to supporting service users to access advocacy supports and services that protect their interests and rights, and assist individuals to reach their goals and potential. We support the notion of advocacy being provided by individuals and agencies independent from the service in order for the advocate to freely promote and represent the rights and interests of service users.
We ensure that advocates are involved to the greatest possible extent to represent the interests of the service user. Community Connect Transport Services assists service users to obtain advocacy support that recognises the cultural, religious and linguistic background of the individual. Service Users are assisted and supported by team members to access all forms of advocacy.
