HELP TO SPEAK UP FOR YOURSELF.
Sometimes you need help to sort a big problem in your life or you might have to make a big decision.
Often there are a lot of different people telling you what they think would be best for you.
An ADVOCATE is someone who might be able to help. They will listen to you and find out what YOU want. They will help you to understand what is happening and they will support you to speak up for what you want. If you need them to, they can speak for you at meetings. They are INDEPENDENT and don't work for the council, health service or care providers. Their job is to speak up for YOU.
If you think an advocate might be able to help you ring 0191 4786472 or come down to our drop in.
