Your Voice Counts Advocacy Services
Advocacy information for professionals
At Your Voice Counts, we help vulnerable people to be involved in important decisions about their life, making sure their wishes are heard and their rights are upheld. We have been delivering advocacy services since 1991 and hold the Advocacy Quality Performance Mark. We provide a range of advocacy services, including statutory and independent case advocacy.
From June 2023, we are the new advocacy provider for Gateshead. Click here to find out more.

Spot purchase advocacy
We are sometimes able to take on additional advocacy work over and above our contracted arrangements. We will need some key information about the referral and the funding arrangements before we can agree to the work. If you would like us to us to consider picking up an advocacy referral on a spot purchase basis, please provide information about the referral and the funding arrangements by completing a spot purchase referral form.
