Advocacy is taking action to help people say what they want, secure their rights, represent their interests and obtain the services they need (taken from The Advocacy Charter).
Our Advocacy service aims to ensure support and representation for a person for, whatever reason, does not feel they can deal with a problem themselves.
Age UK Walsall no longer receives funding to deliver our advocacy service but we remain committed to supporting people with any of the following issues:
Ways in which advocacy can help
- independent support
- benefit claims and appeals
- case reviews
- general paperwork
- support at any type of meeting / appointment
This list goes on - if it is important to you then it is important to us.
