Advocacy

We aim to help you find solutions to problems that you are facing. We will help you find the correct information, or take the right course of action, and we will be there to support you through any difficulties.

The Age UK Sevenoaks & Tonbridge Advocacy Service will provide assistance on a range of subjects including: 

  • Community care issues
  • Hospital discharge
  • Residential and nursing home advice
  • Dealing with health authorities
  • Care appeals
  • Social needs
  • Housing needs
  • Accessing legal advice
  • Concern about physical, emotional and sexual abuse
  • End of life care planning

What is an advocate?

Our advocates have been specially trained to help you:

  • Convey your point of view to other people
  • Access the information you need to make your own choice
  • Represent your views to others if you feel unable to do so
  • Make up your own mind about an issue

On our Information & Advice download page you can find Local Information Packs which you can download and print out on Money Matters and Legal Advice.

 If you or a relative would be interested in our advocacy service please telephone us on 01732 454108 or contact us.
