The Devon Advocacy Consortium provides an independent, professional advocacy service for people over 16 in Devon.
Advocacy is taking action to help people say what they want, secure their rights, represent their interests and to get the services they need. Advocates can visit you at home or a place of your choice and if an advocate can’t help they can find someone who will.
The Devon Advocacy service can help you if:
- You have a health and / or social care related issue or complaint
- An informed choice has to be made
- A person lacks independent support
The person is lacking in confidence or is having trouble communicating
