Specialist Advocacy

Specialist Advocacy

We deliver independent advocacy to any vulnerable adult aged 18 or above, who requires support to have their voice heard when important decisions are being made about their lives, or to overcome issues that are impacting on their health, wellbeing and preferred lifestyle. This includes but is not restricted to: 

  • Providing one to one independent advocacy in a range of settings;
  • Enable people to participate in decisions being made about their lives, making informed choices by providing them with accurate and accessible information;
  • Support clients to express their own thoughts, wishes and feelings wherever possible, or gather sufficient evidence to ensure the person is at the centre of best interest decisions, and their rights are upheld;
  • Liaise and communicate effectively with a range of health and social care professionals.

Any body can make a referral for this type of advocacy support.
