Some people may feel confident in raising their concerns with a service provider without the support of a formal advocacy service; this is called self-advocacy. You have a right to ask questions and to be consulted about your services. Your feedback and communication assist service providers in improving the quality of their service and may assist other people who may have similar issues.
