Abstract

Social workers often work with people who are disempowered and disenfranchised. A core aspect of their role should therefore be to understand people's needs, and work with - an on- their behalf to help them achieve the best possible outcomes. Advocacy is a crucial part of this process; it is about taking action to help people say what they want, secure their rights, represent their interests and obtain services they need (Action for Advocacy 2012). This chapter introduces the different types of advocacy, and explore some of the tensions for social work practitioners.
