We don’t charge individuals for our advocacy service, but we have to find the cost from grants, contracts and individual service commissions. Recently we received a donation from someone who had sold some unwanted items and gifted us the money they had made. We were able to use this to continue working with a vulnerable adult with a learning disability and other health issues after some grant funding had ended. The advocate was able to stay in touch and chase up the professionals to ensure the person had the right care and support.
Get in touch with us today and let us know you are thinking of donating to us. We are registered for Gift Aid so will make every bit of your donation count no matter the amount. Let us know how much you want to give us, and we can arrange for a bank transfer or other method of payment. We will let you know ‘how much advocacy’ your donation will buy, and keep you updated on the difference it has made to individuals or self advocacy groups.
“Being part of the self advocacy groups has really helped me settle into Basingstoke after moving here a year ago.”
“Thanks for confirming [the referral]. To reiterate what I said in my last email, the service provided so far from Speakeasy has been very helpful and much appreciated.”
The weight loss charts the advocate did with me have helped me eat the right foods. It’s made a real difference to my life I have never felt so happy. It’s stopped me going back to the dark place (self harm).”
“Thanks for your quick response. I rang the family to say I had made the referral and they said the advocate was seeing them the next day!”
“I have heard such great things about your Advocacy Safety Net Project from the Social Prescribers, it will be such a shame if it can’t continue”
“Without you I am not sure where I could have gone, or what would have happened”
‘Thank you for all your support with K as I haven’t a clue where to start with finding employment opportunities and helping them become more independent, I am struggling with day to day issues that K presents’.
“Thank you so much for persevering with us, we really appreciate you checking in with us over a period of time. So many other services are quick to ‘close your case’ and you have to chase them up”
“Thank you very much for all your time, effort and support; it has meant a lot and helped me immensely.”
Many thanks for all your help and support with all our patients that we have referred to you and I hope that Speakeasy are able to get hold of some more funds as your services are amazing.’
“I am impressed with how much you have achieved for people living in the Hart & Rushmoor area, I’m surprised what you have done with a small team! Amazing work unpicking the issues that others didn’t understand or have time to explore”
