What is Advocacy?
Advocacy seeks to ensure that people, particularly those who are most vulnerable in society, are able to:
- Have their voice heard
- Defend and safeguard their rights
- Have their views and wishes genuinely considered when decisions are being made about their lives.

We provide a free and confidential service for people living in the London Borough of Enfield, that have been referred to us by a mental health professional or GP (referral Form [download]). Our advocates take instructions from you, our client.
