Advocacy North East provides independent advocacy throughout Aberdeenshire to adult users of health and social care services with a Learning Disability or Mental Illness/Disorder.
Advocacy is needed because at times it can be difficult to tell people about the things you want, or to disagree with what someone has said.
An advocate will listen to what you say and help you find information about the choices you may have.
Advocacy is a way to enable people to make informed choices about, and to remain in control of, their own care.
Using the advocacy service
The advocacy service is free and confidential. You can refer yourself or ask another person to do this for you.
