Age UK Wigan Borough Advocacy Service

From tribunals and consumer issues to health care and housing challenges, the Advocacy Service is here to ensure anyone aged 60+ living within the Wigan Borough has their views heard so that their rights are respected and their needs are met.

The Advocacy service will help by
• Ensuring your views and wishes are accurately expressed
• Challenging decisions and outcomes which you do not feel to be fair
• Attending meetings where you feel you need support
• Ensuring people have access to information and services

The service will not give advice but will support you by providing as much information as possible to allow you to make more informed choices and decisions, empowering you to ensure your rights are upheld and needs are met or to signpost to more appropriate service providers where necessary.

It will also offer support by challenging decisions on various issues such as housing, health care, employment, debt, bills, appeals and care provision.
