Title: Divers besoins/Various Tasks

A Citizen Advocate is a competent volunteer citizen, who, with the support of an independent back-up system, represents, as if they were his own, the interests of another person who is in some way disadvantaged or living with a handicap. Many individuals are disadvantaged or living with a handicap in such a way and/or to such a degree that they cannot adequately satisfy their major needs or represent their own interests in society. Such individuals need other citizens who, in important functions, act for their interests and who assure that their “protégés” achieve the fullest possible benefits of citizenship. Depending on the needs of the protégé, advocacy roles can range from formal to informal, and from short term to long term, or even life-long. Formal advocacy roles include adoptive parenthood, guardianship, and the conservatorship of property. Informal roles include friendship, guidance and what has been called “guide-advocacy”.
