Individual Carer Advocacy Service

by Edinburgh Carers Council

We provide a free, independent and confidential advocacy service for carers supporting someone who is in hospital or who uses services in Edinburgh and who has dementia, an acquired brain injury, learning disability, mental illness, or physical disability.

Advocacy is about standing up to an injustice, or addressing concerns about a particular issue. Often we advocate or ‘speak up’ for each other as family and friends in our everyday lives. Many carers find themselves advocating on behalf of the person they support. All of us find it difficult, at times, to get our voice heard about decisions or actions that affect our own lives or the lives of someone we care about, this is where advocacy is important.
