Sometimes in life we need support to do the things we want to do. It can be difficult to stand alone especially in situations where you need to challenge others. Our Advocacy Service is designed to support you to express your wishes.
This might be a simple situation, perhaps to challenge a utility bill or may be far more complex; perhaps you are being made unhappy by those around you. Sadly sometimes older people are written off as being "too old" or "a bit confused" and are stopped from making their own decisions and others around them start deciding what should happens to the older person's "best interest".
On occasions this can even be family members, doctors, and nurses, solicitors and social workers; it's very hard to make a stand or to disagree especially when those around are only trying to help. However we all have the right to make choices in life, no matter who we are and sometimes those choices may be unconventinal or seem irrational to others.
