Who we are

Founded in 1999, SWAN is an independent advocacy charity working across the South of England. We are inclusive of all and deliver high-quality, independent advocacy services supporting a diverse range of people in our communities such as the LGBTQIA+ and multicultural communities.

What we do

We have developed a model of advocacy which ensures everyone, including the most vulnerable members of our communities, have the same rights and opportunities as their fellow citizens. Our services are free at the point of delivery, confidential and non-judgmental.

Who we help

We work with people from all walks of life and have already supported thousands of the most disadvantaged and marginalised people in our communities, helping them to have their voices heard and their choices respected by those that are making decisions about their future.
