Older Citizens Advocacy York (OCAY)

Advocacy service for older people in York

What does it do?

Older Citizens Advocacy York (OCAY) has been set up by older people for people like you to ensure that you have a voice which is heard. Advocacy simply means supporting people to speak up for themselves when there is something they want to say.

Older Citizens Advocacy York (OCAY) can provide a lot of information about services, benefits and assessments. We can provide volunteer advocates to support you during interviews, health appointments or assessments, or simply to make sure your point of view is listened to and respected.

Who it is for?

If you are over 50 and sometimes feel nobody is listening to you properly or you are daunted by dealing with organisations such as the health service or the council, then help is at hand.

Where it is available?

Local service (York).

What it costs:

The service at OCAY is free and confidential and independent of the statutory services such as the council, health and social services, which means we can challenge decisions if you are not happy with them.
