Advocacy Alliance is a voluntary organisation, established in 1990 to provide free, independent and confidential advocacy to empower individuals and enable them to have their voice heard. It involves a small team of staff who manage and develop advocacy throughout the area. Our co-ordinators respond to requests for advocacy by:
- meeting individuals who have contacted us for help either directly or via a friend, colleague or service provider
- Listening to the individual, learning about their needs and assessing what advocacy support can be offered
- Introducing him/her to one of our volunteer advocates who will provide support and speak out on their behalf if necessary
- Monitoring the progress of the advocacy support being given
Advocacy Alliance offers advocacy support to adults living in the Scarborough, Filey, Whitby and Ryedale areas. We are based at Office 28, The Street, 12, Lower Clark Street, Scarborough and provide an outreach service throughout the area.
