Independent Advocacy

Why Independent Advocacy?

You may already have many people in your life who speak on your behalf such as family, friends and support workers.

Having an advocate is different because we are completely independent of any services you may be receiving; so there is never any conflict of interest.

Advocacy North East uses skilled professional and volunteer community advocates who have undergone specialist training and are police checked.

This means that an advocate can support you to put your views across and to challenge decisions other people have made about you.

The advocate will make sure that decisions are explained to you in a way that best suits your understanding.

The advocacy service is free and confidential.

What the Advocate will do:

  • The advocate will work with you to ensure that your views are understood.
  • The advocate can help you write letters or make phone calls.
  • The advocate can help you plan for meetings.
  • The advocate can attend meetings with you or go on your behalf.
  • The advocate can help you find information and help you to understand the choices that you have.
  • The advocate will support you to become more involved in decisions that affect your life.

What the advocate will not do

  • The advocate will not give you their opinion or advice.
  • The advocate will not seek to create barriers between you and other people.
  • The advocate will not deal directly with your personal finances.
