Citizen Advocates

Advocacy is taking action to help people say what they want, secure their rights, represent their interests and obtain services they need. Advocates and advocacy schemes work in partnership with the people they support and take their side. Advocacy promotes social inclusion, equality and social justice.

Our Citizen Advocates are key members of our teams and the role they play in providing advocacy support to vulnerable people in the community is vital.

We are always pleased to hear from anyone who is interested in giving some of their time to support others to have a voice, feel empowered and stand in their corner.

To find out more contact our Advocacy services in Slough and in Surrey.
