Welcome to our Adult Service.
Our mission is to help those who feel their voices and opinions are not being heard and to empower and promote independence.

For adults with a learning disability, mental health problem or an acquired brain injury.

Adult Advocacy Worker

Advocacy to me is being a voice for those who need it most. No matter the circumstances you deserve help and to be listened to. That is something I feel very passionate about. Never be afraid to use your voice for honesty, trust and compassion.

Tony Quinn
Adult Advocacy Worker

The role of an advocacy worker is one of the most important roles within the community. It gives those who feel like they have no voice the power to be heard. I am proud to be a voice for those who need it.
