Giving a voice to vulnerable adults in North Tyneside.

Why Advocacy?

Sometimes basic rights are denied to vulnerable people. Advocacy is founded on the belief that people are of equal value regardless of ability, wealth or status and are therefore entitled to equal rights.

We should all be entitled to the following rights: To make decisions about our lives, To receive the social and health services we need, To know our rights, To be treated with respect, Not to be discriminated against, To make a complaint when things go wrong,

Case Advocacy, Statutory Advocacy and Advocacy under the Care Act:

Our statutory advocates provide our IMHA, IMCA and DoLS service. These services are for people who’s care comes under the Mental Health Act or aspects of the Mental Capacity Act.

We have a team of case workers who work with people on specific issues. They start with an initial chat to identify your need and any appropriate action required. Meetings can take place at our offices or in certain cases we may be able to visit you.

Our case workers can also assist with Care Act assessments, reviews, Care planning and assist with safeguarding meetings.
