Community Based AdvocacyWe have advocates who work with people on a one to one basis on a short term or longer term basis dependent on individual need.
Appointments can be arranged in our office or in a mutually convenient location, including a persons home when required.
Hospital Based AdvocacyVisits can be made to people who use the service when they are in a hospital within Ayrshire. We also provide advocacy for patients in Ayr Clinic. Appointments can be made for advocates to visit by contacting our office.
Non-instructed AdvocacyThis is where a person who needs an advocate cannot tell their advocate what they want. This may be because the person has complex communication needs or has a condition that prevents them from clearly stating their wishes or desires.
In such situations the advocate has a role in safeguarding the persons interests and will follow the guidelines published by the Scottish Independent Advocacy Alliance.
