Wolves Advocacy provides this independent advocacy for eligible people. The Wolves Advocacy website also makes available many free self-help and advice leaflets and packs that can also be downloaded from their website below.
The service provides a generic advocacy service which is funded by the City of Wolverhampton Council. They provide free professional advocacy services for Wolverhampton citizens from the following groups:
- Disabled People
- Family Carers
- Older People
- People with substance abuse issues
From April 1 2015, the Care Act extends the right for eligible people to have independent advocacy to help them be actively involved in their care and support process, including their:
- Care assessments
- Care and support planning
- Care and support reviews
- Safeguarding enquiries
- Safeguarding adult reviews (previously known as serious case reviews).
You are able to download free leaflets, packs and guides to help you to help yourself. They include things like a debt self-help pack, a letter to your GP asking for evidence for a benefit claim or appeal, advice and free layout of a will, plus lots of other useful help.
For further information and details about support please contact the service or view the Flyer under the 'downloads' section of this page.
