Outreach Advocacy

The service targets the most vulnerable adults and parents of children with especial needs by providing them with relevant information, advice and guidance. We do regular home visits, phone calls or arranging transport for the users to come to our centres in order to seek the support they need and when needed it. This is the diagnostic stage and after it has been agreed what is best for the use, the necessary arrangements are made where it might involved referrals to appropriate services.
