Individual Advocacy Skills Training
(Note: CILT does not do political or systemic advocacy)
Sometimes we have difficulties dealing with service providers or don’t have the information that will help us to make informed decisions and we don’t always know where to turn. We may need someone to guide us through the process of reaching a desired goal or want someone to support us while we’re looking at the options available to us.
The IL Skills Trainer at the Centre for Independent Living in Toronto (CILT) Inc. does not work “for” you, but “with” you so that you can develop the skills needed to advocate on your own behalf. These skills may include letter writing, making phone calls or holding meetings with individuals who make decisions that may affect us.
