Advocacy Service

If you receive care services such as care at home or residential care, or if you feel you could benefit from these services you may be entitled to an advocate.

They can help you understand your rights and explain the choices you have when it comes to the care you receive or need

What will the advocate do?

An advocate is there to help and support you in making your own decisions about your care and support. They are also there as a supportive voice to speak up for you on your behalf, if you need them to.

They will be able to support you in your:

  • Care and support assessments

  • Care and support planning

  • Care and support reviews

  • Safeguarding processes

Whilst supporting you in these processes they will also be able to help with:
  • Understanding what's happening

  • Understanding information

  • Understanding your opportunities

  • Making sure your rights are being respected

Who is entitled to an advocate?

You may be entitled to an advocate if you are:

  • An adult who needs care and support

  • A carer of a child or an adult in transition

  • A young person and you are approaching the transition to adult care and support services.

You can always check if you can get an advocate with your local council
