Changing Lives across the South West

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.

Over the last 17 years, we have developed a high-quality model of advocacy which ensures the most vulnerable members of our communities have the same rights and opportunities as their fellow citizens.

We believe that everyone has the same right to be heard, be in control of making choices, and to be safe from violence and abuse. Our services are free, confidential and non-judgmental. Our approach is focussed on empowering individuals in making decisions, promoting independence as much as possible.
