Advocacy at the local, provincial and national level has been a priority of the Association since its beginning. It is through advocacy -the process of speaking up on someone else's behalf- that society will become a more welcoming and accessible place.
The SACL employs three 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.
If you are interested in advocacy support, contact the SACL Advocate assigned to your area in the province.
