BME and Health Advocacy Referral

BME Advocacy Referral
 

What does the service do?
 

Advocates are allocated to work alongside people who are referred to the service and where there is a specific issue, or issues, that the person feels they need advocacy support to resolve. Generally, although not exclusively, advocates provide support to people who need assistance to understand their options and assert their views, choices and opinions in relation to services they are receiving from health and social care. An advocate can support people to:

 find information about their options

 discuss and understand their situation and the choices available to them

 speak up; by supporting them at meetings and reviews, including those with health and social care services and helping people to write letters or make calls.

Advocacy is free to access and confidential.
