Giving you a VOICE
Supporting you to access your RIGHTS
Being be part of your COMMUNITY
We are an independent, community based advocacy organisation that has been providing advocacy in Basingstoke since the mid 1990s.
In April 2014 we expanded to cover Andover & Test Valley and Winchester & District areas of Hampshire. In December 2015 we began working in Hart & Rushmoor.
We are a User Led Organisation as all of our Trustees have experience of services directly or as family carers.
"Thank you to everyone who was involved in the Groups. We really appreciate the time and effort you have taken. We have read all of the Groups submissions and will ensure they will form part of our reporting."
"Thank you for listening to me even when l don’t make sense"
"I like you – you treat me with respect. Everyone else treats me like someone with a disease"
"The advocate has done some fantastic work with the client which has really supported him through his care planning and enabled him to feel listened to and make his own decisions which is great. I was really impressed with the resources she used to communicate with and she always came prepared for every visit."
"You know we thought advocacy might not be of any use, well it was very helpful as you can see the client has really responded well to having someone he knew and who knew his past. He was able to talk about the past and also what is happening now. He stayed in the meeting which he has not done before. I am very positive about his future."
"Thank you for supporting X last week to enable to get things into place, it wouldn’t have been possible otherwise."
