How we can help

An advocate supports individual people, especially those who are vulnerable.  An advocate can help you:

  • Understand your rights and choices
  • Understand what is happening
  • Help you make your own decisions
  • Help you to have your say on issues which are important to you
  • Make sure your views and wishes are taken into account when decisions are being made about your life
  • Defend and protect your rights

We work to the principles of the Advocacy Charter.

We also provide more specialist types of advocacy:
