What is Independent Advocacy?

Independent advocacy is a way to help people have a stronger voice and as much control as possible over their own lives.

Independent advocacy is there just for you and to help you get the information you need to make the choices you want.

Independent advocacy will help you to have your say, understand your rights and what options are available to you.

Independent advocacy is not part of the NHS, Local Authority or any other service provider.

Independent advocacy is free and confidential and our work is guided by you.
