What do Eiriol do?
Eiriol works with some of the most vulnerable members of the community who require support for reasons of mental illness, distress or lack of capacity. An advocate helps to safeguard and promote the rights of clients, both under mental health law and policy, and their rights as a citizen. An advocate enables a client to have their voice heard and empowers them to make informed decisions about their care and treatment helping them to take greater control over their life. Advocates do not give advice or make decisions on a client’s behalf, but enable clients to build the confidence to make these choices for themselves.
“Advocacy is taking action to help people say what they want, secure their rights, represent their interests and obtain services they need. Advocates and advocacy schemes work in partnership with the people they support and take their side.
Advocacy promotes social inclusion, equality and social justice.” The Advocacy Charter
