Cloverleaf Advocacy is an independent charity established in 1995, based in the North of England. Our services support over 8,000 people each year.
We provide high quality advocacy services to people with mental health needs, learning disabilities, older people, people with physical and sensory impairment, and carers. This includes people in hospitals, secure mental health units and residential homes.
'Advocacy' is all about helping people to control their own lives.
We support people to make their own decisions, have their voices heard, their rights respected and to achieve their own goals. We support people to say what they want, even when other people may not agree with their decisions.
We work with individuals, carers, groups, communities and service providers, to help people reach their goals and become healthier, happier, more active, involved and independent.
We help people to understand and be involved in health & social care processes that affect them, and aim to reduce people’s dependency on statutory services. People who use our services and their carers are at the heart of our organisation.
