Nottingham & Nottinghamshire Advocacy Alliance

What does it do?

The Nottingham & Nottinghamshire Advocacy Alliance is an independent voluntary organisation providing advocacy, training and other opportunities for vulnerable people to speak out and have a say about their own interests, services and the decisions made about them.
Our work is led by the people who use our services and not by service providers, and as such there is no conflict of interest. Our organisation is dedicated to developing a culture where all people are treated equally and with respect.
Established in 1995 and based in Nottinghamshire, we are locally focused. We understand and value the needs of vulnerable people
within the community.
All our staff are fully trained and highly skilled in the delivery of advocacy. They have exceptional abilities that enable them to listen, understand and put their own values to one side – putting themselves in the vulnerable persons shoes. It is our aim to develop the services currently provided and to initiate new services for those vulnerable people, who at present have no representation.
