If you’re an older person, or a person with disability or mental health issues, or you’re someone who uses alcohol or drugs, you’re in the right place.
Our ‘Your say’ advocacy is all about helping you to be heard, understood, and to fix problems or change things that don’t feel right.
If you’re unable to speak for yourself, find it difficult, or you just don’t know how to fix a problem, we can help.
If you only want information and to discuss options to fix things yourself, we can do that too.
And, after all of that, if you decide you don’t want to do anything further or the time isn’t right to deal with an issue, we will respect your decision!
You will be in full control of what and how we help you and that’s the only way we work.
The most important thing is for you to get the correct information, consider options and, when the time is right, you can tackle the problem. We can act for you or just be there behind the scenes.
Our service is all about you.
Better still, you will always decide how you want us to work.
Our service is free. Everything will be kept between us. We will only work for you and what you want.

Your advocate will listen to you, provide information and options about what can be done. You will then decide what you’d like to happen and how your advocate will work.
