Advocacy Services

Increasingly, people who come to Manor Gardens seeking support have a range of issues in their lives which impact on their health and wellbeing.

Our trained advocates, many of them bilingual, help people cut through bureaucracy and red tape to find the solution to their issues. This has a major impact on the wellbeing of so many people and is key to improving their independence and ability to live on their own as part of the community.

We have been working with refugees and newly arrived migrants for many years and have a pool of trained community interpreters who between them speak over 30 languages. We also employ trained advocates who speak Arabic, Farsi, Spanish and Turkish as well as being fluent in English.

Our Stroke Service works with people who've survived a stroke and their family and carers and much of our work is advocating for housing issues, disability benefits and transport needs. This significantly improves their ability to live independently in the community.

All of our services will support clients to find the support they need to deal with day-to-day issues and will support them to access the help.
