Support to meet your needs
We have been providing advocacy services since 1996 and have a vast amount of experience in helping people to get the support and help they need.
We can provide differing levels of support ranging from giving information and signposting to other support services, to visiting you in your home, helping with correspondence and telephone calls, supporting you in meetings and appointments and other activities.
The different issues with which we can help are wide ranging and include helping people to access the services they need to remain independent in their own home, challenging decisions and making complaints, helping people with housing issues, helping people to manage health problems and helping people to organise their finances.
'Your Voice' is a free and independant advocacy service that helps you to say what you want, secure your rights, represent your interests and obtain the services you need.
