Advocacy is helping people to 'speak for themselves' or have a voice. We all need
an advocate at some point in our lives but for different reasons. There are times
when we lack confidence or do not feel able to speak for ourselves. At times like
this an advocate's support may just be enough to help sort things out.
The voluntary advocates help with letter reading/writing and filling in forms, as
well as offering DLA and general support for Deaf and hard of hearing people. Other
services include Housing Advice, Welfare Benefits Advice, Debt Management Advice
and BSL translation of documents such as utility bills.
