If you have a friend, family member or neighbour you are concerned about you may wish to refer them for advocacy support. At the Devon Advocacy Consortium we are able to support people with health and social care issues. If we cannot offer support we will always aim to signpost you to someone else who can.
If you would like to refer someone to the service it is a good idea to talk with them first and ask if they are happy to receive support from an Advocate. If the person is eligible for a service the Advocate will contact them and arrange to meet with them to discuss their issues. The Advocate will act under the person's instruction and help them to have their views and wishes heard regarding their care and treatment.
If you would like to refer someone to the service please call us on 0845 231 1900 or email email@example.com.
