Advocacy services can help to ensure that you are involved in the decisions that affect your life. The health and care system can seem complex and confusing and saying what you want can feel stressful, especially if you need on-going support.

An advocate can:

  • Help you express your opinions
  • Provide information
  • Help you understand and explore your choices
  • Offer practical help, such as writing letters and attending meetings
  • Make sure the correct procedures are followed

An independent advocate may be helpful if there is any disagreement between you, your health or social care professionals or even family members about a decision that needs to be made.

An independent advocate should represent your wishes without judging or giving a personal opinion. You might not get the outcome you want but an advocate can make sure your voice is heard.

In Knowsley, advocacy services are available from Knowsley Advocacy Hub, who offer both general and specialist advocacy services, including Care Act advocates, Independent Mental Capacity Advocates, and Independent Mental Health Advocates.
