WELCOME

Sefton Advocacy is an Independent Advocacy Service for people who live in Sefton. Every individual has the right to say what they want and need when important decisions are being made which will affect their lives.

We have been providing advocacy services in the Borough for over 10 years. The service is unique within the area. The reputation and demand for our service continues to grow.
Sefton Advocacy is INDEPENDENT, FREE and CONFIDENTIAL

Advocacy is an enabling process and we support people by making their views and needs known so as to promote their independence, choice and control over their lives. Major decisions are supported and information provided so that people can make their own informed choices and decisions.

Sefton Advocacy is a generic service and advocates for a broad range of individuals. This can be crisis intervention, or longer term citizen advocacy. We also support self advocacy and user involvement groups.

If a client has difficulty in instructing or lacks capacity to instruct Sefton Advocacy uses a ‘best practice’ non instructed advocacy model. The organisation has much experience in alternative methods of communication and ‘best interests’ advocacy. Our advocates are trained to act in partnership with a vulnerable person in a way that builds confidence and empowers people to achieve self advocacy where possible.
