Advocacy in the Community

We provide qualified advocates, who can offer formal representation and support at meetings and appointments.
An advocate is someone who will listen to your worries and problems and work along side you to achieve your aims.
Advocates are a valuable source of information and can help the people who use their service to feel in control of their own lives – to feel empowered.
