helping you to be heard
OPAL can make a referral to official OPAL partner and independent advocacy provider, Ceartas, if you feel that is necessary and on your behalf.
Independent advocacy is a way to help you to make your voice stronger and to have as much control as possible over your own life. Advocacy Workers do not make decisions on your behalf and they will not put words in your mouth. Independent Advocacy will help you get the information you need to make good choices, and give you the help you need to express yourself clearly.
