Advocacy is offered in the following areas; advocacy under the Care Act, Independent Mental Capacity Advocacy, Independent Mental Health Advocacy, community mental health advocacy, advocacy for older people, advocacy for carers, advocacy for people with learning or physical disabilities, advocacy for children and young people and advocacy for deaf people. Voiceability work with two partner organisations, National Youth Advocacy Service (NYAS) who provide advocacy for children and young people, and Cambridgeshire Deaf Association (CDA) who provide advocacy for deaf people. You will find information about eligibility for each type of advocacy on our information pages.
Total Voice has offices in both Cambridge and Peterborough although our advocates will normally arrange to meet you in another setting such as in your own home, in a hospital or residential care home or another community setting.
