Our Services

General Advocacy

Are you finding it difficult to put your views across or feel you aren't being listened to in relation to a particular issue or situation?   Our General Advocacy Service can support you to have your voice heard with issues such as accessing a service and or making a complaint.  It is available to anyone in the city of York, over the age of 18, who has a disability, mental ill-health or is disadvantaged or vulnerable.

Our Advocates are all trained professionals and the service is free, confidential and independent.    

Our Advocates can help you:

  • have your voice heard by supporting you to speak up for yourself or give your views
  • access services that can support you with your health, wellbeing or independence
  • write letters, make phone calls, arrange and go to meetings

Our Advocates can't:

  • make decisions for you
  • offer emotional support or counselling
