Who Can Be an Advocate?

Who Can Be an Advocate?

You don't need to have a doctor's degree or be a caregiver of a disabled person to become an advocate. Advocates are individuals who have some spare time to volunteer in their community. They may have learned about a specific disability from a friend or family member and have decided that they would like to champion that cause. In many instances advocates are people who have been touched by a disability, either as a caregiver, friend or relative. In some cases the advocates are those who are disabled themselves.
