For Advocacy Now
Advocacy now is a small, active charity supporting vulnerable and marginalised people to speak up in decisions affecting their lives. We support people to make informed choices and ensure that their voices are heard, ie local authority, DWP and courts. The issues we work on include health, care and support, money and benefits and housing. We support adults living with dementia and their carers. Ultimately, we seek to empower people to take control of their own lives and become self-advocates. Advocacy can be life changing and witnessing the transformation that we can help bring in people’s lives inspires us to expand the reach of our work and try to help more people in need. Volunteers are a key part of this and will, with training and mentoring, visit people in need and work with them to make their voice heard, resolve their issues and achieve a better quality of life.
