Care and Support Advocacy

  • Do you need help to be involved in decisions about your care needs? An advocate can help you be heard and understand your choices.
  • Do you live in Northamptonshire and need help to be involved in decisions about your care needs?

A VoiceAbility advocate can help you be heard, understand your choices and make your own decisions. People with a substantial difficulty being involved in decisions about their social care, who don’t have anyone who can support them, are eligible for an advocate to help them participate in the process.
