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 get 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 in saying what they want, represents their interests, protects their rights, and helps them obtain services.

How we can help you

NHS Complaints Advocacy: Supporting you if you have not had the service you expected from a service provided or paid for by the NHS.

Advocacy For People Who Lack Capacity: For people who have been assessed as lacking the capacity to make certain decisions.

Social Care Complaints Advocacy: We will support you if you wish to make a complaint about local authority social care services for adults or children.

Spot-purchase Advocacy: You don't always have to use the advocacy provider who is commissioned in your area.

Mental Health Advocacy: Support for people who are under section in a hospital, secure unit, or in the community.

Children and Young Person's Advocacy: Someone is on your side.

Self-advocacy Groups: Self-advocacy means speaking up for yourself and what you want.

Care and Support Advocacy: Making sure people have their say in how they are cared for and supported.
