Need Support? > Advocacy

 

The SACL employs four Advocates who are experienced and trained to support individuals with disabilities and their families to work through issues in their local communities.

Advocates help people deal with educational, health and social systems, with specific questions of assistance and in cases where families or individuals believe their human rights or benefits as a Saskatchewan citizen are being neglected or ignored.
