Advocacy

Protecting the voices, choices, and rights of adults and children

Cambridge House provides free, independent, and confidential advocacy services to help people become involved in the decisions which affect their lives.

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 service you or someone you know received from the NHS
  • People who want support to self-advocate in order to take control of decisions about themselves and telling others what they want.
  • People with learning disabilities, older people, adults with physical disabilities and sensory impairment or those seeking to access social care services to address issues relating to their social and NHS care.

Our advocacy service works to ensure that people’s voices are heard, that their rights are protected, and that they understand what is happening to them. We speak up for them when they cannot, and support and advise them when they can.
