Our Advocates protect the voices, choices, and rights of our communities’ most vulnerable children and adults by providing free services for people with mental health conditions and learning disabilities.
Our team works to ensure that people’s voices are heard, their rights are protected, and they understand the decisions being made about their lives. We speak up for them when they cannot, and support and advise them when they can.
We offer our expert care and assistance to:
- Adults with mental health needs who are subject to the Mental Health Act.
- People who lack capacity and require Independent Mental Capacity Advocacy support.
- Adults who need care and support and are having their needs assessed, planned, or reviewed.
- Carers of both adults and children in transition.
- People who want to make a complaint about a medical service they received.
- People who want support to self-advocate in order to take control of decisions about themselves and tell others what they want.
- People with learning disabilities, older people, adults with physical disabilities and sensory impairments or those seeking to access social care services to address issues relating to their social and NHS care.
