Advocacy service for oleder people in Kent

What does it do?

We use trained volunteers, who visit older people in their own home to express their individual needs, either for themselves
or through a visiting advocate. Not all of us are able to be effective advocates on our own behalf even before we are old.
All of our volunteers are police checked to deal with vulnerable old people and carry identity badges with them. We ensure that our volunteers are regularly updated and trained to a high standard.

Who it is for?

  • As an older person do you need help to make a complaint?
  • Are you unsure about making a fuss about poor service?
  • Have you suffered an injustice at the hands of central or local government?
  • Can you negotiate satisfactory care services for yourself?
  • Do you need help filling in benefit forms?
  • Is your landlord keeping to his tenancy agreement?

Where it is available?
