The GAP Advocacy Service is perhaps the most used and most valued by disabled people and parents/carers. It is a service which ensures that service users are supported to voice their comments, complaints, and views. GAP provides case advocacy, citizens advocacy, peer advocacy and advocacy through focus groups, where services users come together to discuss specific issues, and decide what they need to do or what course of action they want to take given a specific set of circumstances.

Advocates support and assist disabled people and carers to exercise their human rights, challenge discrimination and obtain the services they need to retain their independence. If individual cases raise policy issues in relation to public and private services; GAP works with the body to explore ways of improving people’s lives, changing policy and practice and improving the quality of life for disabled people in the future.
