Advocacy

We provide a free, independent and confidential service to disabled people over the age of 18 who are eligible for social care. We work in partnership with Mind and Mencap to offer this service. 

Our Advocates are dedicated to making sure you have effective representation. They will guide you through the process, taking the time to explain your rights so that you can make informed decisions. 

Here are some of the issues we can assist with:

  • Access to legal support
  • Care packages
  • Placement reviews
  • Adaptation
  • Care assessment appeals
  • Direct payments
  • Refusal or reduction of social services
  • Wheelchair service
  • Making complaints regarding the council, police, or housing.
