The Right to Make Decisions
We all have the right to make decisions about our life.
We are born with this right.
We hold it regardless of ability.
We all use support to make decisions.
There may be times we need extra support, such as:
- When others make an assumption about our abilities;
- When we are unwell;
- When our memory may be affected;
- When we don’t understand the information available;
The decisions we make should be respected
If you feel you have trouble having your decision respected or having your decision actioned, you might need an advocate.
