The Advocacy People (Plymouth)
Plymouth Advocacy provides all statutory and non-statutory advocacy for the people of Plymouth and is free, confidential and independent.
As an independent charity, all of the services we provide are free and confidential.
We all know how hard it can be when we don't feel listened to, when what's important to us isn't taken seriously by others, or we just don't have the words to say what we really feel or want.
It can be even more difficult when decisions are being made about our health and social welfare.
We're The Advocacy People and we can help. We'll take time to understand your situation, explore the options and help you decide what you want to do and how you want to do it. We can give you as much or as little support as you want to put your views across.
We won't judge you, tell you what to do or take over things when you can do them yourself: it's your life and you deserve to be heard.
What is advocacy?
Advocacy supports people to say what they want, represents their interests, protects their rights and helps obtain services.
