Medway and Swale Advocacy - a voice for people living with mental illness

Sometimes you may feel you are not being listened to, for example by health and social care professionals, or by those who provide services, or even perhaps your own family, and you may feel unable to communicate or express yourself in order to get your own view point across.


An independent Advocate is someone who will support you to ensure that your views and rights are respected, that you are treated fairly, your concerns are taken into account and you have real control over the big decisions in your life. 


Advocates can help you speak up at meetings, deal with difficult issues and help understand important decisions that are being made. They are professionally trained, fair and impartial, and the service is completely confidential and independent of the local authority.
