What is Advocacy?

Advocacy works around the belief that equal opportunities should exist for everyone. Advocacy seeks to ensure that people, particularly the most vulnerable in society are able to :

  • Express their views and concerns
  • Access information and services
  • Defend and promote their rights and responsibilities
  • Express options and choices.

In essence an advocate represents a sort of unconditionally for a vulnerable individual, they may in fact be the only person in that individual’s life who is on their side.  Our fully trained Independent Advocates will:

  • Support with needs assessments
  • Support with care and support planning.
  • Support with care reviews.
  • Support with safeguarding enquiries.
  • Support with safeguarding reviews.
  • support people to explore their options.
  • Empower people to make their own decision's,
