The Advocacy Project in Hackney

23rd March 2018

We are excited to have been appointed as the lead provider of advocacy in Hackney from 1 April 2018.  We look forward to working with local teams to ensure that people in the borough can access high-quality advocacy that meets their needs.

The service will deliver the following types of advocacy:

  • Independent Mental Health Advocacy
  • Independent Mental Capacity Advocacy
  • Independent Care Act Advocacy
  • Non-statutory Advocacy

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

You can ask to speak to an advocate by:

  • emailing
  • calling us on 020 3960 7920
  • making an online referral
  • through other organisations

If you would like to find out more or get involved we would love to hear from you. Please contact us at or phone 020 3960 7920

Working together we can make sure Hackney residents can speak up, understand their rights and make meaningful choices about what happens in their lives.
