Living with disability brings challenges, and at times, you might need some help.
You may need help to make a difficult phone call, need someone who can write a letter, or someone to attend and support you at a challenging meeting. This is the role of an advocate.
In many cases, the Advocate is a friend or family member, for others, it may be a nurse or social worker. But if you don’t have anyone to help you, this is where independent Advocacy can help. An advocate will support you to speak up for yourself as they are there JUST for you, and have no ties to other agencies or people in your life. An advocate helps you to get the information you need, to understand your options, and to support you in putting your choices to others.
The team at PCAS are here to help any adult (18 or over) who is struggling with physical disability, mental health issues, hearing or sight constraints, or with learning difficulties.
Our team of advocates are all trained to listen, understand and act on your issues; confidentially, sensitively and for YOUR benefit.
- Help you understand your choices, so that you can make informed decisions
- Work with you to resolve relationship issues with family or carers
- Help you address financial matters or issues with your care services
- Be your voice if you need to communicate with hard to reach organisations, and help you resolve disputes or queries with key services or utilities
- Visit you in your home if that suits you best
- Act on YOUR behalf, to give you a voice and allow you to be heard. We are an independent charity, not a government authority
If you need our help, then you (or a family member on your behalf) can contact us now, see details on our Contact Us page.
