The office, which is now located in Squires Gate in Blackpool, will provide a base for our dedicated team of Advocates who cover these areas. Our Advocates work seamlessly across Lancashire using our four main hubs in Accrington, Leyland, Lancaster and Fylde and Wyre.

Operations director, John Hutchison, said: “We wanted to ensure that our Advocates are strategically placed to provide services in Fylde and Wyre as part of the Lancashire County Council contract. This ensures we are providing a local presence of advocacy.”

Advocacy Focus is an award-wining charity that has been delivering independent advocacy across Lancashire since 1998. Our specialist and free service supports a wide range of individuals with varying health and social care needs.

We are experienced in working with people with mental health needs, learning disabilities, dementia, individuals that lack capacity or have ‘substantial difficulty’ being involved in decision making and many more.
