Advocacy is where you get support to help you to speak up for yourself and get your voice heard. Advocates can also help you to find information and understand your rights.
Cheshire West and Chester Council and Cheshire East Council, who pay for this service, would like to hear your views about Statutory Advocacy. This is to help them shape the new advocacy service which will be in place from 1st September 2022. It is called statutory because this support must be offered locally.
In Cheshire, statutory advocacy is provided by Age UK Cheshire and Disability Positive.
