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.
"It's difficult living on your own so it’s good to be able to see a familiar face (even if it is by video) and being able to talk to someone"
"I'm very impressed at how prompt you are, you got back to me so quickly to sort this referral out"
"Thank you for your continued support to this family and the effort you have put in to engage with them, it is very much appreciated"
"Just talking it through with you has helped me work out what to do next and make a plan"
"I just wanted to take this chance to thank you for all your help getting X sorted out for the future. I’m so pleased to tell you that the difference you have made to his circumstances has been just fantastic. X already looks calm and settled. He is looking healthier and the weight has been lifted from his shoulders. Thank you so much, your work has certainly made a difference.
"I'm really pleased to get an advocate as no-one ever sees me they just offer phone calls and pass me on to someone else"
"Thank you so much for your assistance with this client"
"Just knowing that I have someone on my side who keeps a track of things helps”
"I tell [professionals] to contact you as you are the only one who knows how to work with me”
"Thank you so much. I honestly cannot thank you enough" (after advocate had managed to contact client with Autism who doesn’t engage and help them instruct a solicitor)
"I can talk to you because you are the only one who listens to me”
