Onside launches Redditch Community Advocacy Project

Funded by Redditch Borough Council this new approach aims to support people living in Redditch who have chronic, long term heath conditions or disabilities including older people and those with mental health issues and learning difficulties to live well at home.

Community advocates will provide a single point of contact helping vulnerable adults to navigate their way around health and social care provision.

They will support people to:

  • Better manage their own lives including the care and support services they receive as well as day to day practicalities such as paying bills and dealing with correspondence
  • Better understand the choices and options for care and support available to them
  • Express their views and wishes including making representations when services are not effective or meeting their needs

To find out more or to discuss how the project can help you better support the people you work with contact Cathy Jackson-Read on 01905 27525 cathy.jackson-read@onside-advocacy.org.uk
