Advocacy Services are changing in Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire
The new City and County wide access to advocacy service, Your Voice, Your Choice, will be starting on 1st April 2012. This replaces all advocacy services that have supported adults with a Physical and Sensory Impairment, a Learning Disability, a Mental Health problem, older people and people with dementia.
Your Voice, Your Choice will be delivered in partnership by POhWER and Age UK Notts. There will be a single contact number for all advocacy services. People who contact the service will be assessed holistically to understand their needs and issues, and given appropriate and accessible information, advice and advocacy to help them resolve their issues.
The service will also provide referrals for people with complex issues and needs, providing issue based advocacy support to a wide range of service users.
Statutory advocacy services will also be available from the service, together with information about the services for professionals.
All services can be contacted by phone on 0300 020 0093 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please also see www.pohwer.net for information.
