MOIRA promotes empowerment at all times and is proactive in ensuring that our service users are familiar with their individual rights.
MOIRA supports people’s rights to choice, decision making and to actively participate in the development and provision of our services. These opportunities may be formal or informal, as an individual or as a group.
To support empowerment, and enable participation and wellbeing MOIRA encourages the use of advocacy, professional services, language services, interpreting and translating support to overcome any barriers you may face.
Advocacy is about supporting people to stand-up for and realise their rights. These rights might be as broad as human rights, the same rights that apply to all members of our community, or an individual right such as the right to a quality service. Advocacy is about ensuring that the wishes and interests of the person are heard and responded to as effectively as possible.
