Asist Advocacy Services
Asist provides specialist independent advocacy support focused on one-to-one, issue based advocacy services for people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities and/ or mental health issues.
Advocacy is about enabling people who have difficulty speaking out to speak up and make their own, informed, independent choices about decisions that affect their lives.
Asist offers people support through our core Generic Advocacy Project and a number of specialist projects including BME, Transition, Resettlement and Acute Wards services. Asist also provides the Independent Mental Capacity Advocacy service (IMCA) and the Independent Mental Health Act Advocacy service (IMHA) support in Staffordshire.
Asist is nationally recognised for developing, writing and promoting the Watching Brief guidance which outlines the core principles that underpin all Non-Instructed Advocacy support services across the UK.
Asist is very pleased to announce that Cathy Jones has been appointed to the position of Director of Development and Funding at Asist.&n ...
Many people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities and/or mental health issues have difficulty in speaking up. Your donation will help us to provide vital ongoing advocacy support to individuals, enabling them to have their voices heard, support their personal rights and help to positively change their lives.
