Advocacy in Hackney

We are the lead provider of advocacy in the London Borough of Hackney.

Our service delivers the following types of advocacy:

  • Independent Mental Health Advocacy
  • Independent Mental Capacity Advocacy
  • Independent Care Act Advocacy
  • Independent Health Complaints Advocacy (NHS complaints advocacy)
  • Non-statutory Advocacy, covering health and social care issues for people who don’t have a friend or relative to support them

We work across all care groups, including adults with learning disabilities, older people including those with dementia, people with mental health support needs, acquired brain injuries, physical and sensory impairments and young people in transition to adult services. We also work with a range of local voluntary community sector organisations to deliver non-statutory advocacy in the borough.
