In Camden People First, we give advocacy support and sometimes people talk about very private things. Sometimes people will tell you things that they do not want anyone else to know, even if it does not sound important to you.
Advocacy is often about sharing information with other people, so we need to understand when it is right to share information and when we should not share information.
If we do not want to share the wrong information, we should make sure everyone is respected.
It is very important that when we work at Camden People First, we do not repeat what anyone says until we are sure they want us to.
To be good advocates we must be sure we have all the information about the person we are helping, and we must be able to share this information well with other people if we need to.
