Changes To Our Services

Changes to our services:

Asist has delivered quality Advocacy services across Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire for over 20 years and continues to do so, we are proud of our national reputation for innovation and our long reputation as leaders in this field of work.

Unfortunately as a result of a recent tendering process, despite the recognition of the high quality of our work, we have now lost one of our Staffordshire County Council contracts to a national provider.

From the 6th January 2014, Asist will no longer be delivering generic advocacy provision within the County under the Social Care agenda, we will however, maintain this work for all Health related issues across the County.

Our services in Stoke-on-Trent remain unchanged and we can confirm that we will continue to deliver generic advocacy across the City around both health and social care agendas.

Asist also continues to deliver:

• Independent Mental Capacity Advocacy (IMCA)

• Independent Mental Health Advocacy (IMHA)

• Group Advocacy through our Reach Project

• BME focused Advocacy (Stoke-on-Trent only)

• Transition Project Advocacy for 13-25 year olds (Stoke-on-Trent only)

We will continue to focus on delivering quality services that are accessible and responsive to the needs of our service users.
