What we do

To ask for an advocate for yourself or someone else, click here.

We help people who are marginalised or vulnerable because of their circumstances make their own choices about their lives.

We support them to speak up and help improve important services we all need. We want to make sure people across all age and care groups – including learning disability and mental health – can:

  • voice their concerns
  • understand their rights
  • make effective choices about what happens in their lives

We do this through advocacy services which support people individually, and user involvement projects that help organisations improve the services they offer.

Our advocacy services are independent, confidential, and free to those receiving the service.

Together, we’re standing up for rights and supporting people to have a say on the issues that matter to them.
