The Advocacy Project

The Advocacy Project is a rights based organisation and is centred on the principles that any person has the right to:
•Be consulted about their needs
•Be involved in decisions which affect their lives
•Be treated in a dignified manner and valued as equals
•Avoid being segregated from the rest of the community in work, education, recreation or where they live
•Be treated according to the Human Rights Act 1998

In line with these principles, the Project provides advocacy, which aims to work with people on an individual or group basis to:
•Make sure their voice is heard and their needs and opinions listened to
•Ensure they have as much control as they want of decisions which affect their lives
•Access resources and information appropriate to them

We work across Glasgow, South Lanarkshire and East Renfrewshire. We also support service user involvement and participation through our Engagement and Involvement Service. We have also recently started a carers advocacy service in South Lanarkshire for adults 16+ caring for adults with Mental Health issues.

We also operate a 3rd Party Reporting Centre for Hate Crime. You can find out more about that on the Police Scotland website
