Abstract

Purpose This viewpoint considers how austerity and managerialism impact advocacy services. It outlines the many roles advocacy encompasses and the benefits advocating contributes to the rebalancing of power. Design This commentary is a viewpoint. Findings It is suggested advocacy is poorly funded and access is therefore limited at a time when advocating for autism is most needed. Originality This viewpoint extends the current debate around advocacy by considering its core function: solidarity with people seeking adequate support.
