Contact one of our advocates

Contacting an Advocacy & Participation Worker can be a huge step towards being in control of your care experience

We offer advocacy across most of Scotland’s local authorities and provide a special advocacy service to some organisations providing care on behalf of local authorities. If you don’t see your local authority below, call us on 0141 226 4441 to find out if advocacy support is available where you live.
