Age UK Wigan Borough Advocacy Service
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.
