At One Advocacy, we work with…
The following acts:
– Care Act (2014)
– Mental Capacity Act (2005)
– Mental Health Act (2007)
– Human Rights Act (1998)
As well as various social and health care Acts/Bills and Amendments, including local government and NHS policies.
It can be difficult and feel exhausting when we believe we are not being listened to, and when we feel that what’s important to us, isn’t being taken seriously by others.
Sometimes we don’t have the words to say what we want and how we feel, especially when decisions are being made about our health and social circumstances.
We can help by taking the time to understand you and your situation, We will explore options with you and give you as much or as little support as you want.
We will only act with your permission (consent), and we do not share your information with anyone that you haven’t agreed to (unless we become aware of any risk to yourself and/or others incl. illegal acts.).
We won’t tell you what to do, or take over when you want to do things for yourself.
We will not judge you and your lifestyle choices, and we will not tell you whether something is right or wrong, good or bad.
