Your needs, your choice, your voice
Advocacy Focus on your side,
helping you to be heard

When can we help?


If you’re finding it a challenge getting your voice heard, we can help.

Some of the common times people find they need someone in their corner could include:

  • You’re using or need access to Health and Adult Social Care Services.
  • When you’re not feeling at your most confident.
  • You’re facing a life changing decision – maybe on where you’re living or what care you’re getting.
  • You’re coping with illness – your own or a family member’s.
  • You need practical support if you have a mental health issue or you’re in emotional distress.
  • You need support to self advocate and be fully involved in discussions about your medical treatment and have no family or friends who can help.
  • You’re deprived of your liberty: which means you are stopped from doing the things you want all the time. Sometimes people having treatment or care might be deprived of their liberty to keep them safe.

Of course, there are lots of other times we can help you.
