Advocacy in Kent is Changing and CiLK is a part of it…

From 1 April 2016 there will be a new way to contact Advocacy services for adults in Kent. The new Kent Advocacy will be able to help:

  • People with autistic spectrum disorder 
  • People with dementia
  • Hearing or Sight impaired people 
  • Older people
  • People with mental and/or physical ill health or disability 
  • People who need support to make a complaint about their NHS treatment 
  • People detained under the Mental Health Act 1983 or subject to recall to hospital 
  • People referred by Social Services under the Care Act to facilitate care and support assessment, planning and review and safeguarding 
  • People referred by Social Services or the NHS to support decision making around changes of accommodation and serious medical treatment

Advocacy supports people to explore their choices and options and access information and services. We will help people to express their views, wishes and concerns so they can be genuinely considered when decisions are being made by others about their lives. Ultimately, advocacy supports people to have their voice heard on issues that are important to them.
Kent Advocacy is led by seAp Advocacy, in partnership with Advocacy for All, Alzheimer’s and Dementia Support Services, Assert, CiLK, CROP, RAD and Rethink. All organisations have local roots and many years of experience delivering services in Kent. Together, we are looking forward to offering a clear pathway to advocacy for the people of Kent.
