Your right to an Advocate

speakupInclusivED supports your right to an Advocate. An Advocate is a person appointed by you to speak, act or write on your behalf.

If you need to make a complaint, understand policy or procedure that is relevant to your needs or understand process in regards to our services, InclusivED will provide you information on advocacy services to access.

InclusivED will need permission from the Participant/Representative where personal information is to be provided to an Advocate. A Consent form will need to be signed by the Participant for release of this information.
