East Renfrewshire Service
by The Advocacy Project Claimed
We provide Independent Advocacy support to adults 16+ across East Renfrewshire with a range of health problems including Mental Health Issues, Dementia, physical health conditions and learning disabilities. We offer support and information on rights to people affected by The Mental Health (Scotland) Act 2003, The Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000, Adult Support and protection processes, we assist people to know their rights and put their views across in decision making processes.
The Coronavirus pandemic is affecting how we support people to have their rights respected and voices heard. The main focus for the organisation and its staff is to ensure that we continue to safely support people who need advocacy, and provide this in a way that does not put them or others at risk. In line with Scottish Government guidance, our office is currently closed but we are still providing the following service:
Telephone Support - We will continue to provide advocacy support to individuals in Glasgow, East Renfrewshire and South Lanarkshire. This will be a more limited service based upon the health advice issued by the Scottish Government.
The service will be telephone/email based and we will support individuals to have access to an advocate and be provided with information. In line with the health advice there will be no attendance at any external meetings, however we can attend meetings and tribunals via video or teleconference.
The service will be available Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm. Please contact us if you feel that you need support with -
· An upcoming Mental Health Tribunal
· An upcoming Adults with Incapacity court case
· Adult Protection & Keeping Safe
· Concerns about your health care and support
Please note that we do not have access to any postal mail until the office can re-open. If you have sent us information and/or need to get in contact, please contact us using the email or phone details below.
This is a rapidly changing situation and we will review these arrangements on a daily basis.
