The majority of our services offer advocacy support to people who need it.

Advocacy is about listening to you and working with you to decide what you want to happen. You and your advocate will make a plan and work towards achieving it.

There are lots of different types of advocacy and sometimes it can be difficult to understand what type you need. There is a page on each of the main types that we offer but the summaries below might help you choose which would be most likely to be right for you.
