What is Advocacy
Advocacy is about helping people to speak up for themselves and understand what their rights and entitlements are -

• an advocate can help you to put your views across

We are independent of social services and health services.

We are here to listen to your concerns.

• Navigate through health or social care services that may affect them
• Is a carer and needs support to use services.

All referrals for Advocacy should be sent to the Hub who will then allocate to the most appropriate advocacy provider.
