The Advocacy Project

The Advocacy Project can help you to understand your rights and choices and speak up about what is important to you. The Project provides free, independent and confidential advocacy.  They are independent from other services including health and social care.

The Advocacy Project helps older people, people with mental health problems or learning difficulties and hospital patients. They can help with speaking up, exploring your options, providing information and making complaints. If they can't help directly they will give you information about other services.

As well as working one to one, The Advocacy Project runs a number of outreach projects. The Time to Change Conversation Café project will be running a series of cafés across London, creating a space in which people with lived experience of mental health can share, over tea and cake, their stories and reflections. The project also holds regular community discussion events designed to help people over 60 shape and improve services for older people.

The project also runs Advocafé which brings together people from Kensington and Chelsea, Westminster and Camden. It is a speaking up group for people with learning disabilities who cannot attend a group in the daytime.

Anyone can make a referral, including an older person, a carer, relative, friend or a professional worker from the voluntary or statutory services.
